Are there differences in depths of snow or is it the same terrain only white?

Same terrain, just a re-texture. However values are slightly changed to decrease traction.

Can someone remind me again as to when the snow usually shows up. I know it's the week of Christmas, but was it the 24th through the 26th or does Rockstar activate it during the weekly change up before Christmas?

^^ IIRC(?), it's about one day before Christmas, and lasts about one week--until New Years or so.

Sadly not. It is typically only two or three days around Christmas, then it disappears and reappears at New Year again for a day or two. A full week of it would be great.

It seems so silly to have the snow only appear at times where a lot of people are not able to play.

In 2019 R* filled in some of the wishes of the playerbase. Hopefully a longer snow period will be implemented as well.

Both in game and real life actually.

Nope! At least two of us. :)

 

Snow in GTA Online makes driving a royal pain in the glutes. And don't get me started on IRL snow! Ugh.

It's snowing

Here's your proof to those who are trying to correct everyone spreading false information bout when snow starts and finishes... This was the first "it's snowing" posts from last year... U see .. 21st early in the morning and ended the 26th, 4 days before Christmas 😉

 

 and was gonna add another quote but didn't wanna scroll back again lol, but for New year's, the first post for it being back was on New year's Eve the 31st early in the morning, and stayed until the third, so we get about 7-8 depending on whether u can play on certain days due to time zones and how late u stay up lol... Figured I'd clear this up...😎

I love the snow. I like driving in gtao and the snow gives it something special around Christmas and New Year.

Snow should start showing up randomly at the start of December, but not stick to the ground. 

 

Then it progressively becomes more common, sometimes sticking, until a couple days before Christmas, where its stays until Jan 3rd or whatever. 

 

I would play a hell of a lot more if that was the case.

Thanks. And considering LS is the GTA version of LA, snow seems pretty pointless, as well as being a massive inconvenience.

Aside from finding the snow aesthetically pleasing, I also enjoy taking on the conditions. My favourite is trying to do Fully Loaded in the white stuff while fending off triggered Mk. II blowhards - challenging but fun.

I agree the snow is also about taking on the conditions. It is good to develop your skills. Assuming one can drive fairly good without the snow. 😉

Imagine Rockstar changing the snow to be more like in Red Dead 2.

 

Guess one can only dream

Oh man, I know what you mean. Next version of gta Mate, I can’t wait. Driving home for Christmas.

I love snow, in both.

 

The game manages to capture the atmosphere of snowy weather really well I think, and I think that is due to the good lighting. There is something pretty great about being on a quiet street in Paleto Bay at dusk, walking the streets of Los Santos at night or a hike around Mount Gordo and the lake early in the morning.

Only when I have to drive to work in it, otherwise I love snow.

Exactly.

 

And I definitely love it in-game. It makes doing missions harder, which makes me do less missions/work - therefore spending more time having fun, like I used to.

There are some nice little challenges to do, such as fly a small plane like the Cuba or Mammatus in first person view, at night from LSIA to Grapeseed airfield. Can’t see a thing so you have to use the radar and the instruments. Good fun.

This 💯! All my favorite non vehicle things to do other than drive around in my santa costumes in my liberator and find cool places to take pictures and constantly playing Christmas tunes on the horn as I drive by people waving lmao...

 

Need a new vehicle to drive around this year tho... I usually am in my liberator, but quite a bit in my deluxo and Hydra, was gonna try the mountain bike down the mountain that some suggested! Lol  other than that tho I need suggestions!!!

 

Oh and remember on red dead we have Christmas tunes played by the pianists in the saloons, hopefully Christmas stuff added to snow area on there too lol

 🎅
