Wintery winter getaways
When it comes to winter, we Canadians tend to fall into two camps: those who relish every snowflake, and those who hide like grizzly bears, trying to stay asleep until April. The former take their winter vacations in Banff or Mont Tremblant or Whistler, or some other perfectly gorgeous, snow-laden resort town where an affinity for hot chocolate is as easily indulged as a need for downhill speed. The latter take to the skies like Monarch butterflies, desperate to get to Punta Cana or Cuba or Bermuda as quickly as possible.
In either case, it's time to shake things up. Our winter-lovers tend to think a Canadian winter is the quintessential winter, so why go anywhere else? Our winter-haters need to be lured away to a snowy destination with an activity so unique and a place so worth seeing, not even they will want to stay in the house. Here are 10 great wintery winter holidays both tribes of Canadians will love.

More Researchers have only recently found the longest large mammal migration in the continental United States: Mule deer migrate 150 miles (241 kilometers) in western Wyoming each year. And it's no easy task for them—barriers include highways, fences, tough terrain, and bodies of water. In this video by Joe Riis, a National Geographic grantee and regular contributor, see the modern-day obstacles mule deer overcome to make the migratory trek that they likely have been making for generations.
