Frequently Asked Questions

The creation of the snow angel- a simple process.

      1. find an undisturbed plane of fresh snow.
      2. lie with arms and legs outstretched, on the snow.
      3. Sweep your limbs back and forth, creating a trough through the snow.
      4. Get up carefully so as not to disturb your snow creation

When complete, the snow angel should have the appearance of a stylized angel, the movement of the arms having formed wings, and that of the legs having formed a gown.
