It's beautiful. you will need to change your robe a few times though. and if it's below -15 your hair could freeze up. Bring a toque

For my husband and I, there is nothing better than being outside in a SPA after a big snowfall. This is what we enjoy the most. I would recommend it, we love the Nordik in the Winter. Enjoy.

Almost everything is indoors, except the hot water tubs that are outside, so you can get out and go back in another building pretty quickly if it's snowing outside.

Sorry, I have never been there during a hard snow fall. I would suspect that at some point in time however they would have to close the spas for safety reasons. The Spa itself should be able to answer this question better.

Great, although clear cold days with a little snow are better.We've been there in a blizzard and it was very entertaining. Just be sure to rent a house coat. There really isn't much of a difference other than you won't have the same view of the city in the large pool.

The snow will make everything look very pretty and you'll probably find that your body temperatures will adjust to water and air accordingly although you'll want to move from hot to cold pools quickly/may be enough going from one spot to another to get the cold part of the cycle. It's also good to hit up one of the relaxing areas that have the overhead infared heaters and/or outdoor hammocks (the blanket is weighted).
