White Christmas 2012 Edition: Sault Ste Marie, CAN? Advice from those in the know, please.
A handful of years ago I pulled out one of these
sorts of guides to determine where the best place of finding a white Christmas within a 16 hour drive of Northern VA would be. We selected Conway, NH at the base of Mt Washington and loaded up the car with our ornaments and our dogs for a road trip. Trip report is here
for those interested. We had a lovely, romantic, perfect getaway with tons of snow (incl on Christmas day) and the little postcard perfect community had a lot of holiday events incl a Christmas dinner. There was also a lot of outdoor winter events we took advantage of (snowshoeing, cross country skiing, cog railroad, horse drawn sleigh rides, etc).
We want to do it again, but we are adventurous sorts and would like to try a new location. Sault Ste Marie, CAN shows close to 100% chance of snow on Christmas morning (our #1 criteria) and is a 14.5 hour drive. But I know nothing about the location and google results don't really give me a good feel for how cozy/romantic/winter wonderland kind of place it is and how nice the people are. That's where you come in. I'd like to hear all about the town with regard to winter wonderland potential for a DINK couple arriving with 2 dogs in tow.
