Bridget said the best things about snow are, "You get to go down it like a penguin and you get to eat it."


Sable Blunk, 8, of Jasper, left, and Athena McNabb, 6, of Holland, sled down a hill in Jasper on Tuesday. "It's fun because you get to pick a place with a steep hill and then you get to actually slide," Sable said. "It feels like you're flying."
