Although Hawaii is more often associated with sunshine, beaches, and surfing, it’s not unusual for them to receive snow and it is even possible to ski/ride at the higher elevations. A storm in January 2020 dumped up to three feet, snow in January 2021 was enough to ski and ride, a winter storm watch was issued in May 2021, and more recently a storm in December 2021 brought heavy snow too.
