Default Snow in the Sahara
That's right, 15 inches

“It’s rare, but it’s not that rare,” Mr. Haarsma said in an interview. “There is exceptional weather at all places, and this did not happen because of climate change.”

Kamel Sekkouri, who grew up in the Aïn Séfra area, said he had seen snow there five times in the past 40 years.
He described the scene as “incredible, unbelievable, magical, sensational.”
“When you walk in the snowy dunes, you feel like you are in Mars or Uranus,” he added.

That would be as much fun to blast thru on a snowmobile as a golf course. Abandoned golf course of course.

What a cool picture! I do believe snowy sand dunes would be really fun to check out.
