How common is chionophobia?
It’s hard knowing exactly how many people have a specific phobia, like chionophobia (fear of snow). Many people may keep this fear to themselves or may not recognize they have it. We do know that about 1 in 10 American adults and 1 in 5 teenagers will deal with a specific phobia disorder at some point in their lives, though.
Chionophobia is a natural-environment phobia. Environmental phobias are common. They also include lilapsophobia (fear of tornadoes and hurricanes) and nyctophobia (fear of the dark).
