Coming from the tropics, I'd just had to let my little girl try what a snowy winter is like. Of course if you're from the Nordic states or somewhere where snow causes havoc in your life, this is one place that you'd want to steer clear of.
Decked in winter jacket and boots, my little girl and I took that brave step forward. Freezing, was the first thought on my mind. Anyway, no way could an institution replace nature in making snow. Those we found on the ground were more like ice shavings while those coming for the sky were more like suds!
We were given 40 minutes to turn ourselves into iceman! There was really nothing much that we could do. But as long as my daughter was happy, so was I. Even at minus 5 degrees.
Do note that you kid needs to be older than 3 years old and also, they have to be above 2 feet in height.
Indulge in a snow fight, go sledging or simply enjoy the gentle touch of falling snowdrops on your face at Snow World.
Experience our winter wonderland, and bring home the fondest of all winters home !
Be thrilled by the Cresta Run snow slide that will definitely steal your breath away !
