With the festive season looming, Ski holiday specialists Crystal Ski have teamed up with the Met Office to put together this detailed, data-driven approach to snowfall predictions – specifically what your chances are of seeing a white Christmas in your part of the UK.

As you might have gathered I enjoy a sprinkling of the white stuff so I was pleased to see that my home county, where I’ll be spending much of the Christmas and New Year period stands a decent 9% chance of becoming a winter wonderland fit for the ages.
I remember well those tundra-like scenes when 10cm of fluffy snow descended on us in the night back in 2009. We might have only had 2 white Christmases in the past 25 years but I’m remaining optimistic.
The site also digs into some famous snowfalls from the last 100 years. With detailed statistics on the 4 snowiest Yules we’ve celebrated – 1962, 1968, 1995 and 2010. Scotland wins out for me with 43cm falling over 11 days – sounds very ski-able to me, that.
I won’t ruin it any further so I recommend you check out the site, but I will say that one UK region racks up an impressive 55% chance of snow – maybe it’s your neck of the woods.
