Winter is almost upon us. For some, that’s great — snow and cold weather and lots and lots of skiing/snowboarding. For others (author included), it’s a time to mourn and ponder the past days of warmth. This month’s question focuses on your dream location during snow season, no obstacle of money or location considered. Some gravitate to sun; others clearly live in their element, happy to stick with snow.

Peru. I did my graduate degree there and there are a lot of cultural resources.

Somewhere on the coast. Probably Santa Cruz. I grew up running around the redwoods. I’m nostalgic for the Santa Cruz mountains.

Peru because I want to watch the full moon from the Temple of the Moon.

Mt. Rose is south of Reno, right? I would just go to Rose and ski all the time.

I would go to New Zealand. The food and wine, culture, and just the overall beauty of the place.
