This is a very unusual phenomena that I've experienced twice. It happens on snow covered hills. The first time it happened was on New Years Eve, where I was sledding with my friends. The second time it happened was just a few days ago while I was skiing in Colorado. What happens is that sound seems to be amplified and you can be heard clearly and from very far away.

I really don't have a clue on why this happens, but it could be this. The fact that snow is white and makes light bounce off of it more than any other color may mean it works the same way for sound waves. This is a very eerie phenomena and I'd like to see if anyone has an idea what it is and what's causing it.

First, snow is soft and absorbs some sound. And since you're sledding or skiing on areas where there are hills and valleys, I imagine what little sound there is will be amplified and reverberates back and forth from one hill to another. We get this in our canyon; we can hear normal tone conversations from our neighbors who sit and converse in their back yards and on their patios & decks, from across the canyon. The cacti and trees absorb mundane sounds, but voices are carried up and bounce off the sides of the canyon walls.
