There are a lot of Christmas songs about snow and the desire to have snow on Christmas day. Even if you hate the snow, you probably wouldn’t mind a little snowfall on Christmas as long as it melted by the afternoon.

Statistically, there are portions of Idaho that get more snow than other places and some are more likely than others to have snowfall on Christmas Day. 1 city in Idaho is among the most likely in the entire United States to have new snow on Christmas Day, and it isn’t Sun Valley.

This Idaho City Has a 66 Percent Chance of a White Christmas

The city in Idaho that is most likely to have a white Christmas is Boise. In fact, Boise is listed as the second most likely major city in the Western US to have snow on Christmas. Salt Lake City, no real surprise, is the number 1 most likely.

The study done by OLBG (a sports betting community website) looked at major cities in the United States, but there are some smaller cities that have snow in the long-range forecast too.
