Snow On Maui

Who says it does not snow on Maui?

I grew up in a tropical country. I had never seen snow when I moved to Maui. Since it’s another tropical island, I never expected to see snow here too. But in January of 2005, it snowed up at Haleakala mountain! Since my kids and I haven’t seen “real snow” at that time, my husband immediately took us up the summit. We drove to the peak of Haleakala Mountain late afternoon (stayed there until 10 PM) to experience the snow. It was so much fun!

My husband is from Connecticut so he’s not as excited about snow as we are (his wifey and kids). But I am sure he was please that he drove us up there because we were so happy – we played and played with the little bit of snow up there.

Here are some of the photos I’d like to share:

I found some winner photos on the net of the Haleakala Summit
when it snowed back in 2002. Click HERE.

    Snow! What fun! We live in Southern California. Snow is within driving distance. My kids have only seen the left over on the ground, never real falling snow. How wonderful for you and your family.

    Looks like you had a blast! We spent one winter on the North Shore of Oahu and believe me it was so much better than in NH! Wish I was there this winter!

    Hah! I saw snow for the first time a few years back after trying out the northwest… They can keep it. I love O’ahu and San Diego. No snow unless you wanna drive for it. Like it that way!

    oh how fun, I tripped across your blog and love it. I got married in Maui a few years back, we went up without snow but at 3 am to see the sun rise and it was cold enough!

    We’re going back in February, and hoping to make our first trip up to Haleakala. We’re sure to be leaving so much snow behind here in Chicago while we’re gone, and it would be blast to see the snow on Haleakala.
