    1. Hi Richard,
      I have checked dictionary.cambridge.org.
      powder = fallen snow that is loose and dry and has not begun to melt.

      For sentence #3, 雪深的地方 is a place with “deep snow”. And I think “deep snow” is almost the same as “deep powder” based on the definition of dictionary.

      Or should I translate it to “I love skiing in deep snow” ?
      Please correct me if I am wrong.

      Thanks.
