We’re just about finished with our first snow, and we’ve managed to keep our clothes warm.
We’ve been living in our tiny hut in the Yukon, where we’ve made snow in our spare time since January.
We’ve been using our tools to make the powder and have even used a sewing machine to sew some snow into our snowshoes.
“We don’t really have a problem sleeping,” our host, Alyssa, said.
“But our snowmaking skills have been lacking.
We haven’t been able to create snow that looks good.”
We’re lucky to have a lot of snow in the mountains, but we’re not the only ones.
The weather in Alaska is perfect for snowmaking.
Snow is often more stable than water and is easier to control, according to the Alaska Snowmaking Institute.
“In winter, the temperature of the air is much colder than it is in summer, so there’s less snow,” explains Anna.
While Alyssas snowmaking experience has been good, it hasn’t been without its challenges.
We had to take a lot longer to get started, and the powder didn’t last as long as expected.
We did a lot more experimenting to make sure we got the right amount of powder and that we had enough to make enough snow for our needs.
We had to get the right mix of ingredients.
The powder we used to make snow in February had a high amount of water, so we had to make a lot for each day, Anna explained.
The snow made up a lot, but when we added snowflakes to the mix, it turned out to be a bit more dense than we had anticipated.
We also had to find a way to make it last.
As winter approaches, we’re looking forward to getting out to our ski resort and ski hills, where the powder is starting to fall.
We’re hoping to have the first snow in mid-March.
But if you’re looking for a warm place to get your feet wet, we suggest heading to the Yukonaluk National Forest in the north, where you can start snowmaking and get some of the best snow on the planet.
