Russell Roberts's curator insight, November 14, 2013 9:26 AM

There are several climatic zones on Hawaii Island, stretching from semi-dessert to sub-arctic.  When winter storms bring colder temperatures to the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, it's not unusual to see a layer of snow at both peaks.  The recent heavy rains have left a thin dusting of the white stuff on Mauna Kea.  When the snow begins to accumulate in the aftermath of a winter storm front, many local residents make the long journey to the summit to collect snow and even snowboard down the cinder and bolder studded slopes.  When I worked at KKKBG-FM/KHLO-AM in Hilo, several of my coworkers collected some snow from the top of Mauna Kea and brought it back to the station, where a small snowman was built...great fun.  Aloha, Russ.
