    This is a video of Youtuber Ann Got's cat (which will now affectionately be known as the Kool-Aid Cat) blasting through a snowbank to return home after a snowstorm in one of those places that got a bunch of snow recently. So probably not southern California. The look on that ... / Continue →

    This is the massive Star Wars inspired snow sculpture serving as the centerpiece of this year's Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan. The piece measures 15 meters (~49-feet) tall, 22.6 meters (~74-feet) across, 20 meters (~66-feet) deep, and took about a month to complete. Impressi... / Continue →

    Note: Article was originally posted January 3, 2008, but because the internet is cyclical the story is going around again so I edited it and moved it to the front page. Seen here looking suspiciously like Jake from Adventure Time in tank form, Yuki-taro is a Japanese robot t... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously, it's not called a tauntaun snowman, it's a snowtauntaun. This is the snowtauntaun made by Redditor Xnipek's friend. That is definitely one tauntaun I wouldn't want to slice open and try sleeping inside of. Honestly, I don't know if I could do that to any ta... / Continue →

    This is a short video of some folks going off the Ski and Snowboard Bungee Ramp at the Tignes Ski Resort in France's Northern Alps. From what I could tell, the bungee cords actually slide on two cables parallel to the jump, so you continue bouncing further and further down the... / Continue →

    This is a very short dashcam video of a TIE Fighter crashed on a snowy highway in Germany. Unfortunately, it looks like both pilots survived the accident. Will one of them prove to be the stormtrooper that finally laser-blasts old Luke Skywalker in the face and puts an end to... / Continue →

    This is the $40 fallen AT-AT lawn ornament being sold by ThinkGeek. It would look perfect covered with a light dusting of snow, invisible after a heavy snowstorm, and entirely out of place in the summer. You might want to keep that in mind when you're making your purchasing d... / Continue →

    This is a video from NBC News of weatherman Mike Seidel making it rain in Sugar Mountain, North Carolina on live television. The station immediately issued a statement claiming Mike had dropped his cell phone and was looking for it, which doesn't seem to be the case. I MIGHT ... / Continue →

    Note: Dude drops a solid f-bomb at 0:20. I recommend yelling it with him like the world's shittiest sing-a-long. This is a brief video of a 2006 Chevy Equinox that can create and blow snow out of the A/C vents. Yaaaay, let's go skiing! "You mean like, slang for doing coke... / Continue →

    This are two photos taken by Coloradan Cathy Hartt earlier this May. By the way, a Coloradan is somebody from Colorado (just in case you failed geography and thought people from Colorado were called mountain folk -- those are West Virginians). Anyway, Cathy took these picture... / Continue →

    In much more exciting fire news, these are two videos of amateur Russian stuntman Alexander Chernikov being set on fire and leaping off the roof of a five-story apartment complex into a snow bank. Which, for the record, there's actually no such thing as amateur stuntmen, only... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of the different geometric patterns created by artist Simon Beck marching around in the snow of France. How he knows what the design he's creating will look like from above when he can only see it at ground-level is beyond me, but I suspect he does the same t... / Continue →

    After studying two separate DNA hair samples found at opposite ends of the Himalayas, University of Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes has claimed that Yetis might actually exist, and be the hybrid decedent of an ancient species of polar bear. I mean, I'm pretty skeptical, but you'... / Continue →

    This is a video of 30 skiers (although I only counted 25) holding hands and doing a simultaneous backflip. Everybody lands it too. If I'd been participating I would have purposefully fallen and dragged everyone else down with me BECAUSE I'M A JERK. Just kidding, because I ca... / Continue →

    Some German pranksters in Aachen built a snow car overnight in a no parking zone and traffic wardens came and gave the car a ticket the next morning. But when police found out it was all snow and there was no car underneath -- boy were their faces red. Get it? Because it was... / Continue →

    This is an Ice King snow sculpture from Adventure Time. He looks sad. Like he just wants to find a princess but can't. Poor Ice King, settle for a giant snow penis? Thanks to ChaosLex, who loves chaos so much he goes around kicking the heads off snowmen and replacing them... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of tigers destroying snowmen. I heard afterwards they all made snow angels then retired inside by the fire to sip hot cocoa. I'm joking, I don't know what they did after that. Probably licked their privates or whatever the hell else cats do. Truth... / Continue →

    FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm visiting my family in Alabama for the first time in two and half years so if posting gets sporadic the next couple days it's because I'm catching up with my parents, hanging out with my brother, playing with my nieces, or explaining to my little sister why ... / Continue →

    Parenting: you two suck pretty hard at it. Wheelblades are $248 skis for wheelchairs and strollers designed to make them easily pushable in the snow. Why you'd even want to go out in the snow if you were in a wheelchair or stroller is beyond me, but my guess is it wasn't your... / Continue →

    This is the Survival Split snowboard built by Signal Snowboards and jam-packed with everything you'd need to survive a night in the wilderness without getting sexed by a Yeti just you can sleep by the fire in his cave. *shivers* Never again. [The board] separates into three ... / Continue →
