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.
