If you’re looking to tear up the slopes this season, there’s no better place to do it than Canada’s mountain villages. The Great White North is home to picturesque resort ski regions like Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and Ski Québec city-Charlevoix. But it’s not just about the trails and views; where you wind down after a run is just as important. Keeping all that in mind, we rounded up the best ski runs and après spots in these two regions. Once you experience Canada’s finest wintry retreats, you’re gonna hope summer never comes back.

WINTER PARK, Colo. — A legendary portal through the Rocky Mountains beneath the Continental Divide is once again making it possible for skiers and snowboarders to take a train directly to the ski lifts.

Denver is again the only major American city where you can step onto a train and ride directly to the slopes. Other ski trains usually require a shuttle bus of some kind to cover the final miles, but Colorado’s Winter Park Ski area sits directly adjacent to transcontinental Union Pacific railroad tracks emerging from the Moffat Tunnel.

It’s officially the fourth driest start to the rainy season in history in Southern California.

That’s creating stress in local mountain communities, with many business owners wondering: Where’s the snow?

“A few weeks ago we were joking about it,” said Larry Smith, who owns the Canyon Creek Inn in Wrightwood. “Now it really is serious.”

The three oldest Trump children are heading west this weekend for some fun on the slopes, with Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric meeting up in Aspen for a family vacation.

It will be a reunion of sorts for the group, who take the same vacation together back in 2015 with their spouses and children, just a few months before their father announced he would be running for president.

The three Trump children will not be joined by the commander-in-chief on the trip, as Donald Trump is in Mar-a-Lago this weekend with his wife Melania and their son Barron.

Snow is finally falling across the Alps, after one of the driest Decembers on record.

In the Swiss Alps, the last time so little snow fell over the Christmas period was in 1864, according to measurements taken by the Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research.

For mountain resorts that do up to a third of their business over Christmas and New Year, this is a worry. While this December’s glorious winter sunshine certainly showed off the Alps in all their splendour, many tourists arrive expecting to be able to ski.

Christoph Marty, a snow climatologist with the institute, understands why hoteliers have been gazing anxiously at the sky. “It definitely affects business,” he says. A post-Christmas survey of ski resorts and lift operators by Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger showed that 56% of them expected to make losses in December.

Surviving an extensive amount of time in temperatures hovering just below 0° seems nearly impossible for any human being, no matter how many layers we are wearing to protect ourselves from the bitter cold.

So when a 25-year-old man named Justin Smith was found laying on the ground by the side of the road after spending 10 hours in a winter storm, it was not likely that he would survive. Justin had decided to walk home in the storm, but he never made it there.

On March 14th, 1993, one of the largest winter storms ever recorded decimated much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Now, 24 years later, a major storm will likely impact many of the same areas late Monday Night into Tuesday.

We are now confident enough to say a storm is likely to hit the area Monday Night into Tuesday. At this point, it simply comes down to the track this storm will take. An area of low pressure will be dropping out of the Midwest and dig just north of the Tennessee Valley Monday Night. From there, alongside this low pressure system, a coastal low looks to form over the Carolina Coastline. These two systems are projected to phase and create a massive storm system Tuesday.

Despite the heavy snow pummeling Istanbul this weekend, the city’s stray dogs were safe and snug thanks to a generous local mall that opened its doors to the homeless pups.

Turkish volunteers at the Atrium Mall in the Bakirkoy neighborhood gave the hounds warm blankets and food during the storm.

Austin just experienced the warmest winter on record.

As the 26 days of 80-degree-plus temperatures and already blooming wildflowers can attest, this winter – which ended Tuesday for meteorologists (but not for astronomers, who are waiting for the spring equinox later this month) – was freakishly warm. The average temperature at Austin’s Camp Mabry, 58.6 degrees, was nearly a full degree higher than the next-warmest winter season, the winter of 1999-2000.

In only one previous year were freezing temperatures banished earlier than this winter. Though no formal data on footwear was readily available, this winter appears to have seen the most widespread use of flips-flops in memory, experts say.

“We’ve just really had no winter,” said Troy Kimmel, a University of Texas meteorologist and instructor. “We saw winter on the calendar, but we didn’t see it in real life.”
