The Snowiest Places to Live

Mover in Boulder CO know that this town gets a lot of snow, so it’s the perfect place to move to if you love that fluffy stuff! But what about the rest of the world? Where are the places on the globe that receive the most snowfall? If you love to ski, snowboard, or just like the idea of a white town during the winter, here are some of the snowiest places on earth (mostly the US)!

  • Mount Washington, New Hampshire: There are a lot of great reasons to move to New Hampshire including no sales tax, a lower cost of living, and Mount Washington — one of the snowiest places on the globe. In some spots on the mountain, around 80 feet of snow piles yearly. You can’t live on Mount Washington, but you can live near it!
  • Nagano, Japan: If you move to Japan’s Nagaon area, you can enjoy plenty of snowfall regularly. This is one of the snowiest spots on the globe, and it’s also one of the prettiest.
  • Alta, Utah: Alta is a popular ski area for good reason — this spot is covered in steep and thick snow most of the year, and it’s the best place to go if you want to ski.
  • Fargo, North Dakota: By January, Fargo is usually buried underneath 12 feet of snow, and this town is known for being one of the snowiest around. If you really love the snow, Fargo might be your ultimate destination.
  • Denver, Colorado: If you’ve moving to Denver, you’re in for a snowy treat! Denver gets an average of 53-inches of snow each year, not too shabby!
  • Fort Collins, Colorado: Moving to Fort Collins? Even better! Fort Collins gets an average of 54-inches of snow each year, so it’s just slightly higher where snowfall is concerned than Denver.
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota: With 55-inches of snowfall each year, Minnesota beats both Denver and Fort Collins where snowfall is concerned. Not sure where to move? Why not check out snowy Minnesota if you love the white stuff?
  • Provo, Utah: Utah doesn’t have a shortage of snow, and Provo is one of the snowiest towns in the state with an average of 57-inches of snowfall per year.

Choosing from National Moving Companies

Whether you choose Colorado as your destination or you’re move keen on living in New Hampshire, if snow is what you want the places listed above will satisfy your need for powder throughout the winter season. Most of these places double as resort towns, or aren’t far from resort towns, too, so you can enjoy living in some of the nicest ski areas in the world should you decide to move.

If you’re currently looking for national moving companies to select from while in the process of your move, make sure to consider Exodus Moving and Storage.

We also offer competitive rates, easy moving solutions, and a qualified moving team with years of experience. If you need to store some items that won’t fit in your new home, we have storage space in both Fort Collins and Denver as well – ask us about our storage space prices and sizes.

For those looking to have the snowiest winters available, nothing beats the towns on this list for snowfall. On the flip side, if you hate the snow, it’s probably best to avoid any town on this list! Call us today for a free quote and to set up your move – whether you’re moving away from or towards more snow!

The Strange Places that Google Earth Finds

Google Earth finds nearly every nook on the planet, and many of those places aren’t known to many people — if any people! The next time that you think your hometown is a bit odd, think about these places that show up on Google Earth!

The Davis Monthan Air Force Base: This abandoned base in Tucson, Arizona, is known by the military as the “plane boneyard,” and it’s literally where planes go to die. When the military no longer needs a plane, it is sent to the boneyard.

Strange etchings in the Gobi Desert: Somewhere in China’s Gobi Desert is a strange pattern of structures and sketches in the ground that Google Earth has picked up on. Why those sketches are there and what they mean is a different story (one that no human can currently tell).

The Kazahstan Pentagram: In the middle of Kazakstan sits a sizeable pentagram. The star surrounded by a circle was largely puzzling until researchers figured out that the star is actually the borders of a park, and the circle that surrounds it marks the boundaries of the park. A strange symbol, but not as strange as it once seemed.

In the Wake of Google Earth

Ever since Google Earth started to dig up some odd places on Earth, many people search Google Earth in their spare time just to see what’s out there. This has given many advertisers with enough dollars a brilliant idea — create an ad that’s large enough for Google Earth to pick up, and tons of people will see the ad when they use Google Earth. This strategy is working for KFC and other chains that have created massive ads, placed those ads flat on the earth, and are enjoying the benefits!

Another thing that has happened since the dawn of Google Earth is the return of many different conspiracy theories. When things like pentagrams and possible UFO landing strips start showing up on Google Earth, conspiracy theorists start to generate rumors — until those rumors can be debunked by researchers, that is. Most of the time, the strange places that Google Earth does pick up are quickly explained. Sometimes, we just don’t know what things look like from up above, and so those things look stranger than they actually are!

Choosing Where to Live

If you don’t have any particular reason for moving, it can be hard to figure out where to go. Here’s where you can use Google Maps and Google Earth to check out possible towns. You could move next to a possible UFO landing strip, or you may decide that living next to an abandoned military base is for you. Wherever you do decide to go, Exodus Moving and Storage (Boulder movers) can help you get there with all of your stuff in one piece.

We may be a moving company in Denver, but we can move you anywhere you want to go. Whether you’re moving to Parker or to another part of the world, we can help. We’ll provide you with a free moving estimate, give you everything you need to help plan your move, and we also have storage space for rent in both Denver and Fort Collins (ask us for rates). There are some strange places in this world, and it’s fun to discover those odd places using a program like Google Earth – but it’s even more fun to move to a new and exciting place.
