    I think Lauterbrunnen is one of the most absolutely charming villages I've seen, but agree with @TOFF, anywhere in snow is beautiful.

    Maybe to Europeans and North Americans though, alot of these charming or quaint snow villages look quite similar and are taken for granted. Whereas Mt Buller, as much as people might bag it for whatever reasons, when it's covered in snow, and snow gums cascade beneath tons of white, and surrounding mountains of our Great Dividing Range all white too, it's a very unique panorama to any other country and quite beautiful. I think we sell ourselves short, and I think it's quite impressive to international visitors.

    throw a bit of snow around, turn on the lights, find a good camera angle and they all look nice.

    Camera needs to point further right. But yes, that is a nice sunny pasture.

    New York is beautiful with snow, as long as you don't need to drive.

    Salzburg isn't a village either but doesn't fare too badly.
