Have you ever noticed that snow is louder when it's colder outside?

IME, when walking on snow, it seems to be louder when the temperature is in single digits Fahrenheit or less. I often wonder why this is the case.

  • The water in the snow freezes when the temprature drops. When the temprature is higher the moisture content is higher making it softer.

  • less moisture in the snow. As the temps drop,the moisture is pulled out of everything.
