While some hate the snow, that’s not the opinion of the stars of the Central Park Zoo's snow leopard exhibit.

The zoo’s two leopard cubs had a great time romping around outside.

The Wildlife Conservation Society released the above photos of the cubs playing in the more than six inches of powder that blanketed Central Park.

The cubs were born this past summer and have the distinction of being the first snow leopards born at the Central Park Zoo.

Snow Leopards are a highly endangered species, scientists estimate there may be less than 6,500 left in the wild.
