With most of our top ski resorts now spinning their lifts, we can now say that winter is officially here (and we have the snow to prove it)! Mother Nature has been dropping bountiful snowfall all around the world lately, reaching the Alps, Japan and especially the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies regions this past weekend. See some photo and video evidence below for who made out best during major snowstorms that hit as of late.
