Although we always mourn the end of summer, the gradual cooling and darkening of the following months brings several things to look forward to. For starters, there's the holidays where giving and receiving presents is a guarantee and overeating is not only accepted, but encouraged. Furthermore, holiday cheer is in abundance, the word “cozy” finally means something again, and Will Smith releases another blockbuster film. Our favorite thing of all about the winter, however, is how we're once again able to lace up our boots, strap on our bindings, and hit the slopes.
We've compiled a list of our 10 favorite mountains from all over the world. Spanning up and down North America, across Europe, and to the Far East, our picks include mountains that offer it all—parks, off-trail, backcountry and more.
