Yes, Paradise has Winter weather and this past week brought snow to Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.
It’s truly an experience to be able to ski at 12,000 feet elevation and be back on the beach in about an hour. And, a spectacular sight to see the snow capped majesty of the volcanoes that formed the island.
Winter’s not over yet – and freezing temps will stick around for a while. Please be mindful of the dangers of hiking the mountains. One hiker had to be rescued after being stranded for two days. Enjoy and stay safe!
