    Looking for snow in mid October to recreate a ski jump.

    Does anyone have any ideas in North America or Europe that are historically more likely to have snow mid October?

    Hi, in Europe you can go to Switzerland or Norway or Sweden, depending on your exact needs. If you need help, do not hesitate to contact us at

    As Bui already said – Iceland would be a right option. In respect of climate, snow and ease of access.The attached image was made in the middle of September. And it’s just 30 minutes drive from a comfortable hotel in the middle of Icelandic forest :)

    Greetings from Iceland Thomas & Thomas!
    Yes, as mentioned below, we have snow here all year around.
    Feel free to email me on and I will provide you heavy-weight or light-weight production service depending your needs and budget. Past two months I have serviced productions from 5 people crew size fashion photo shoot to 80 people crew size production.
    And yes, Im originally from Finland so I do know the snow:)


    We have snow year around up on Mt Hood here in Oregon. In fact they do year around skiing on the upper part of the mountain. The snow is easy to access either via a chair lift or dirt road from the Lodge. Also, there is usually a fresh dusting of snow around mid Oct (but of course that depends on the weather) If you’d like more info please reach out to me directly.
