Snow bombs, anyone? Winter isn’t going anywhere, and there’s nothing like a huge Paris snowfall to remind us.

On Wednesday, sleepy-eyed Parisians woke up to a white blanket of snow covering the entire city. Ranging from a light 2cm dusting to a whopping 20cm, residents had two choices: give up and go back to bed, or embrace this new winter wonderland.

Luckily, Instagram was on hand to capture every moment of snow-filled fun. From moody windowsill selfies to improvized snowboarding, Tiqets’ timeline was drowning with beautiful shots of the Arc de Triomphe, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Montmatre and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. See the best of them below and, who knows, your city may be next!
