The Centennial State woke up to a fresh blanket of October snow this morning, and we think it’s safe to say it was welcomed with open arms. From Aspen to Loveland to Copper to Crested Butte and everywhere in between, the white stuff has arrived and ski season will be here in no time. (Rumor has it that Loveland and A-Basin will be open within the next couple of weeks.)

Ahhhh, winter. If you’re daydreaming about gliding through a snowy landscape or ice-skating under twinkling stars, we have you covered. All of these luxury homes are located in places that come alive during the winter, from swank ski towns to remote mountaintops. But these homes offer much more than just a place to warm up. Their interiors are just as stunning as the snow-covered vistas outside their windows, and amenities like hot tubs and wood-burning fireplaces guarantee you’ll be sufficiently thawed out before the next day’s snowy adventure.

On July 25, 1986 Hobart woke up to a blanket of snow that brought the city to a near standstill.

In the biggest snowfall since 1921, eight centimetres settled over the Tasmanian capital, closing schools and turning roads into dangerous skidpans.

All major roadways around the state were covered in snow and ice, with reports of 20 semi-trailers skidding off the Midland Highway and businesses reporting just a 20 per cent turnout for work.

Les Jackson lived in Bellerive in 1986 and worked for the state auditor. He said that Friday was an unusually quiet day.

“When I got up there was six inches of snow all over the lawns [at Bellerive],” he said.

“There were cars skidding all over the road, not too many cars moving.

“Lots of kids out throwing snowballs.”
