Robert Red­ford with a beard? Yes, please. This rugged sto­ry of a man fed up with soci­ety and leav­ing the mod­ern world for the harsh com­fort of moth­er nature’s moun­tains will leave you yearn­ing for fresh pow­der and the smell of pine.

6. The Shin­ing


Ghosts are cold, made cold­er by the dead of win­ter in the high moun­tains of Col­orado. Will the Tor­rence fam­i­ly per­ish and freeze under the icy grip of The Over­look Hotel? You’re going to want to wrap your­self in a blan­ket after this one.

5. Mys­tery, Alaska


The laughs come loud and often as small Alaskan town’s frozen pond hock­ey team takes on the pro­fes­sion New York Rangers… in Alaska.…outside.…in win­ter. Bur­rrr.

4. Death Hunt

This is not that movie with the song you know all the words to. This is the ter­ri­fy­ing sto­ry of three skiers stuck on a ski lift for three days with no food in the freez­ing tem­per­a­tures of Col­orado. You’ll nev­er look at a ski lift the same way again.

2. The Thing


Trapped in the des­o­late waste­land of Antarc­ti­ca, bat­tling with a shape shift­ing alien life-form that can per­fect­ly repli­cate any­one, who is human and who is a thing? More impor­tant­ly, who will sur­vive?

1. Hap­py Peo­ple: A Year in the Taiga


Film­mak­er and all around crazy man, Wern­er Her­zog spent a year in the arguably cold­est place on earth where humans live year round. This fas­ci­nat­ing odyssey will warm your heart, and make so very thank­ful for your hot sum­mer.
