A bit of a vague question about Christmas and snow

Jump to last reply

We spent a month in France the Christmas just gone and loved it. I am hoping that we will get back to Europe next year (yes, I'm a planner). We will probably go to Paris, Venice, Florence & Rome and we would go for 4-5 weeks. We would really love a white Christmas but it's not going to happen in any of those places. My question is- is there anywhere which is feasible to get to by train where this might be possible without days of travel? I am not a fan of flying once i have landed somewhere (long haul from Australia with 3 kids!) Other info, we don't want to ski, we don't mind train trips of 6-7 hours and we'd want snow to be a pretty sure bet (although i understand that there are no guarantees) to take time away from the places we've already chosen, as generally we like a minimum 5 days in a place. Basically I'd like to either say to my kids that it's not possible logistically on this trip or hooray, I've figured out how to do it. Thanks in advance and please don't be too hard on me if this is, in fact, a ridiculous question :)
