The fact that snow is white seems like a pretty basic truth. But over the weekend in parts of eastern Europe, the snow turned orange.
Taken just yesterday, this satellite photo shows the extent of snow cover in the eastern United States. From Saginaw, Michigan down to Huntsville, Alabama, it’s been that kind of winter.
The Tesla Model X is an impressive performance machine, one day embarrassing cars at the drag strip and the next helping to pull giant trucks trapped on just the slightest snowy incline.
Parts of the Northeast are getting hammered by frigid temperatures right now, just 24 hours after a winter storm dropped a blanket of snow across several states. Near Boston, some people awoke Friday and found the storm had consumed their cars with ice.
Here’s a free piece of advice should you ever find yourself waiting for the first train to roll into a station after a heavy snowfall: Stand as far away from the tracks as possible, assuming you don’t want to get blasted with a massive shitstorm of snow.
It’s impossible not to look at a new feature from Volkswagen with a skeptical eye after Dieselgate, but we’re hoping the company’s new climate windshield, that can melt snow and ice without the need for distracting wires, delivers as promised—because the winter sucks if you own a car.
Damn. In a terrifying accident in Utah, a FrontRunner train crashed into a FedEx truck and basically shredded its trailer into pieces, sending boxes flying everywhere. Thankfully (and impressively), there were no serious injuries in the crash, as it seemed the train busted through the softest part of the FedEx truck.
If you’re from a place where it snows a lot (I’m not), and where people don’t annoyingly complain about how cold it is all the time (not me), and are totally prepared for the winter months (also, not me), you’re probably not as surprised as I am about this seemingly never-ending stretch of badass snow plowers…
I never really thought about visiting Alaska, but after seeing Tom Welsh’s trip out to the north, I started thinking about it hard.
Forget about trying to cram your way onto an already packed subway car when it’s snowy and you need to get to work. Motorcycle maker Christini has applied its expertise in building two-wheel drive bikes to a new snow-thrashing machine called the II-Track Snow Bike system that promises to make wintery commutes actually…
A stunning true-color satellite image taken yesterday shows the Great Lakes shrouded by lake-effect snow clouds. It’s a glorious example of this meteorological phenomenon in action.
Adding to the near-infinite list of things you saw on the internet that you really shouldn’t try at home, YouTube’s the Hacksmith strapped a couple of jet turbine engines to the back of a snowboard and hit his Canadian snow-covered streets because when you’ve got a jet-powered snowboard, you don’t need a mountain.
Last week the California Highway Patrol office up in snowy Truckee shared a photo of something I’d never seen before– snow traction devices that work like zip-ties. The cops used it to illustrate “what not to do” but the concept is actually pretty brilliant.
Photographer Joshua Nowicki captured photographs of the St. Joseph lighthouse at the mouth of the St. Joseph River in Michigan and it’s beautifully (and completely) covered in ice. And because the thick icicles that accentuate the lighthouse are angled back from the strong winds, it looks like an alien sculpture…
The Algerian town of Ain Sefra is known as the Gateway to the Sahara, and it’s not the kind of place that gets associated with winter weather. So imagine the surprise of amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata when he awoke to see his picturesque town and the surrounding sand dunes covered in a blanket of snow.…
Watching Sam Favret ski through Mer de Glace makes me think that there probably aren’t too many places in the world that are more fun to ski than that beautiful valley glacier in the Mont-Blanc massif in the French Alps. There are all these narrow pathways to zip through with huge ice walls surrounding you, little…
You’d think that professional skier Mathieu Bijasson would be a little more careful after having his first kid. But now that he’s a dad, apparently skiing down a mountain on a pair of glowing skis in the middle of the night is how he chooses to spend his time while his kid sleeps.
Incredible photographs from a beach in Nyda, Siberia, show thousands of naturally formed snowballs spread across an 11 mile stretch of coast. This is now officially the best place in the world to have a snowball fight.
As you grow older, you start realizing that you might never get to see certain cities or visit some places around the world. Like, I’m fairly confident that I’ll never visit the Arctic. And, whatever, that’s okay, it’s too cold up there anyway. But my oh my, is it beautiful. It looks almost unreal—the white of the ice…
