CANADA’S BEST WINTER DRIVES
Seven amazing road trips for the coolest time of the year
THE ONSET OF COLD AND SNOW shouldn’t spell the end of road tripping for the coming months. The lines of motorists that would slow your roll through resort towns and on the highways to cottage country in the summer may be in hibernation, but the routes t hemselves — from Newfoundland’s Viking Trail to the B.c.-yukon border-traversing Alaska Highway — never quit. But they are transformed. Rolling white Prairies become almost hypnotically beautiful, mountains are crusted in snow, and the wild seas along the West Coast will drop your jaw. All cold-weather travel takes is a little bit of extra planning and a readiness to brush with the unexpected, so check the longterm forecast, throw a well-stocked safety kit in the trunk, give your winter tires a kick and set out on one of the seven spectacular winter road trips featured here.
