Snowflake Mountain Season 1 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

To be a reality TV fan is to love to watch people that you might never hang out with in real life do the wildest things, and Netflix is currently taking over that market. Whether it's trying to find love by remaining celibate in "Too Hot To Handle" or catfishing your way into the public's heart on "The Circle," the more absurd the premise, the better. Netflix's newest reality shows certainly fit the bill. 

Netflix has recently had so much success with reality content that it announced in August 2021 it was releasing two other UK-based reality shows. The streaming network announced the release of "Dance Monsters," a "large-scale dancing competition with a monster twist," using virtual effects to turn contestants into, yes, monsters. Another show will be a dating show called "Dated and Related," which isn't as incestuous as it sounds, as it pairs up siblings to help each other meet their match, with the hopes that a family member can be the "best wingman ever." 

Mostly, the first two new shows sound pretty awkward, but nothing will compare to the cringe moments to come with the third release, "Snowflake Mountain." Here's what we know about it. 

This is when you can watch Snowflake Mountain on Netflix

Per Netflix, "Snowflake Mountain" doesn't have a release date just yet, but it's coming soon. Given that the streaming service announced the show in a press release, it likely already began filming sometime in the summer of 2021. Netflix's filming schedules are very different from network filming schedules. For example, most Bravo shows follow a predictable schedule: "The Real Housewives in New York City" often films at the end of summer through the fall and then is released sometime in the mid-summer. Likewise, "Summer House," is filmed during the summer and released sometime in January or February of the following year. 

Netflix productions are often filmed in bulk and then released on a schedule according to viewership. Take "Too Hot To Handle," for example. The second season was filmed in January 2021 and released that same summer. However, per Screen Rant, Season 3 was filmed shortly after Season 2, though it's being held for some as-yet-unreleased date, likely sometime in late 2021. The same goes for runaway hit "Selling Sunset," which filmed 16 episodes after the release of Season 1, but those 16 episodes were broken into Seasons 2 and 3, with one being released in Spring 2020 and one in August 2020, via Digital Spy

With that in mind, "Snowflake Mountain" will likely be released before 2022, though that could change as the year goes on. 

The cast of Snowflake Mountain sounds so much fun

Much like the release date of "Snowflake Mountain," not a lot of details about the cast have been announced just yet. But the Netflix description of them sounds like they are going to be meme-worthy if nothing else. The Netflix release describes the show in a release as a "funny, warm-hearted reality show which takes a bunch of clueless kidults who aren't yet living to their full potential and puts them through their paces at a wilderness survival retreat to try and kickstart them into standing on their own two feet." It continues, "The back-to-basics camp is a rude awakening to just how pampered their lives have been so far. At stake is a transformative cash prize for the lucky winner. There's no running water, no parents to wait on them, and, worst of all, no Wi-Fi. But, by connecting to nature, they'll learn to graduate as fully-functioning adults." 

The show sounds like "A Simple Life" meets "Summer House" meets "Survivor," which means it will definitely be must-see streaming when it lands on Netflix. Who these "kidults" are, exactly, remains to be seen. But the release promises that it's an international cast, which means viewers will get to see the pampered lifestyles of non-quite-adults from all different countries, which will be a fun social experiment. 

So what else do we know? Read on to find out. 

Kate Middleton has been to Snowflake Mountain

In addition to boasting an international cast, Netflix reports that the show will be filmed in the Lake District in North West England, so it will also be a scenic look into the English countryside. Per the region's travel website, the area is England's largest National Park and a World Heritage Site, "home to Scafell Pike — its highest mountain, Wastwater — its deepest lake and thriving communities like Keswick and Bowness-on-Windermere," so these "kidults" will be complaining about one of the world's prettiest places to visit. 

In September 2021, for example, Kate Middleton visited the region with Holocaust survivors. But she has often vacationed in the area with Prince William and their kids, where they like to hike and go "boulder hopping," per People. In 2019, a source told People, "She said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells. She told us how nice the Lake District was and how lucky we were to live so close to the mountains." 

If the area is good enough for a duchess, then surely the so-called "kidults" of "Snowflake Mountain" can find something redeeming about their trip, even if they don't have internet or running water.
