Snow on Mauna Kea

Snow on the summit of Mauna Kea

We had a weird weather system settle on the island recently, which provided a week of cloudy, wet weather. It also deposited a decent snowfall on the top of Mauna Kea, which stuck around for a fair while. Maybe it will be a white Christmas after all!

      People do take skis, body boards, and inner tubes up there. A local tradition is to take a pickup there, load it up with snow, and bring it back to the beach for the kids to build snowmen!
