Scots beat Inuits for having highest number of words for snow

Proof that there is snow in Scotland! I do wonder how many of the terms are actually in common usage though.

I also listened to the Radio 1 documentary "Mumford & Sons: Gentlemen of the Road" last night, which was about the Aviemore festival. It was commented on that festivals where you can see snow on the mountains were unusual. Skiing got a brief mention too.
