The Northeast is bracing for a snowstorm that could dump over a foot of snow with 50 mile an hour winds in certain cities. But it might not be just any snowstorm. It could be a weather bomb.
Surprise! It’s cold again. So before you pack away your winter clothes for the year, we want to take the opportunity to find the best hoodie.
Are you obsessed with packing light when you travel, even if it means not being prepared for the weather where you’re going? Then you’ll like the Uncharted Supply Company lightweight, highly-packable windbreaker that can transform into a puffy, warm parka.
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.
I never really thought about visiting Alaska, but after seeing Tom Welsh’s trip out to the north, I started thinking about it hard.
Snowboarder Tom Oye was snowboarding in Whistler, Canada when he got caught in a pummeling avalanche, and it’s beyond terrifying because we get to see the entire harrowing slide down the mountain. One second he’s getting ready to carve the slopes and the next he feels the ground crack underneath him and finds himself…
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…
My advice in surviving winter? Move somewhere warm. Can’t do that? Then just stay inside for three months. Can’t do that? Then... wait, why can’t you do that? Friend’s birthday? Forget about it. Dinner? Order in. Life? Experience it through videos on the Internet. Like this one by ZALUSKart, where bubbles freeze over…
Physics causes some strange phenomena, like slowly-rotating discs of ice on a frozen river that resemble UFO saucers. But have no fear, science is here to explain away your excitement.
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.
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…
Look at this cute little snowman! I bet he won’t even melt and make me cry like the snowman from Jack Frost does.
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…
A huge expanse of cold, Arctic air is sweeping through parts of Canada and the United States. Known as a “polar vortex,” the weather system is expected to deliver record-setting low temperatures and a particularly nasty wind chill.
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.
On Sunday, I arrived in North Dakota and headed to Oceti Sakowin, one of the main camps where Native water protectors are peacefully blocking the planned path of the Dakota Access Pipeline. I did some interviews. The photographer accompanying me took photos. It was icy cold and very dark and once or twice I fell down…
