We are all different.

Some of us hate cold winter days. We dream about summer days or, if rich, go to warm sunny destinations such as the Caribbean.

Others enjoy skiing, ice skating and sledging with friends or a chilly stroll on squeaking snow.

Mild weather is no constraint, large cities often host open air ice rinks. Ski resorts blow artificial snow onto ski runs.
