West coast snowmen of this size are relatively rare, but Nancy Gerber managed to captured one on camera! This particular specimen, spotted in Surrey, B.C., has bottle-cork buttons, eyes repurposed from an old crafting project, and a pipe-cleaner mouth that’s fixed in a grin that’s positively contagious. Fun fact: According to Weather Atlas, Surrey gets an average of just 14 snow days each year!

Two Thumbs Up!
According to photographer Keith Shelefontiuk of Castelgar, B.C., this shaggy-looking fellow goes by the name of “Oskar the Great.” “Oskar was built to welcome the 2023 Troll Loppet to our 61st annual cross country ski event,” he writes. With that warm welcome and gesture of encouragement to the participants, we’re sure the event was a huge success!

This droopy-nosed snowman holds very happy memories for Rena Nixon of New Minas, Nova Scotia. “About seven years ago, our grandchildren had a snowman kit which included the hat, scarf, eyes, mouth, nose and buttons,” Rena writes. “Outside I went on this snowy afternoon to build our friend the snowman with my grandchildren. It was fun creating this frosty fella and then we coasted on the hill.” Sounds like the perfect winter day!

…Before I Melt Away!
With the amount of lawn that’s starting to peek through, it looks like these two are on borrowed time! Photographer Russ Hayes managed to capture the sweet scene while it lasted. “We had recently moved into our neighbourhood when I noticed this snowman and its pet dog across the street from us…so cute!” he writes. “It is actually a great representation of their dog!”
