Guess I've just been unusually unlucky. I recall last December's snows kept me out of being able to get to Pierre for weeks. I've been to Rapid when there has been quite a bit of snow too. Granted, not like being snowed-in in a cabin in the Hills.

Here are a couple towns that might fit the bill:

Telluride, Colorado, population 2400, elevation 8000+feet, averages 170 inches annual snow

Pagosa Springs, Colorado: population 8000, elevation 7000+ feet, averages 100 inches annual snow

Last year was an exception. Normally the snows go to the north of Pierre and south of I-90.

Any little town in Western, PA, right now. We are in our third straight day of lake effect snow, and it is expected to continue until Wednesday. The ground will probably be white until right before Christmas, when it will rain (like last year).

Levinworth, WA is small, picturesque, and reasonably snowy. As is Roslyn. And, really, Ellensburg. Any town in the cascades would work for you. Similar towns in Oregon as well but I know less about them.

And you can't talk snowy little towns without talking about the whole Upstate New York area, towns like Oswego. If Oswego is not snowy enough for you, I give up, I don't know what else to suggest in the lower 48.

Likewise, all the little towns along the front range just north of Denver, Estes Park, places like that.

For that matter pick any small town in Idaho, it will have a white Christmas 99%+.

The Eastern snow is heavier, not as powdery.

May want to specify northern and north central Idaho....not a lot of white Christmases at Twin Falls...Boise...they kinda tend toward a brown Christmas...

That's true, but certainly in Idaho Falls we had a white Christmas, every year, need it or not.

Anywhere around Spokane you should get enough snow to satisfy.

If you like Small Towns with snow around Chirstmas time I always liked New England.

Default My snowy little town: Biwabik, MN population 950

Well, pooey - I can't figure out how to load the photos into this post. Can't cut and paste and when I put them on Flickr and then clicked on the Insert Image icon nothing seems to transfer either.

Anyway, here are the links to some pictures I took of my snowy little town - Biwabik, MN - population 950 ish. I just took these pictures this afternoon 12-21-10 about 3:30 p.m. on an overcast day - it's going to snow again tonight.

DSCN0202 - Gazebo in Biwabik's park | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

DSCN0216 - My street in Biwabik MN | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Hope you can access and enjoy the pix! Biwabik is pretty year-round, but especially in winter. There's a ski resort up the road a bit - Giant's Ridge - in case anyone's interested.
