The Most Breathtaking Winter Wonderlands from the W Archives

This week, the first snow blanketed New York City — and then the second, indicating winter has finally arrived in full force. Ski resorts are open for business; city residents have broken out the parkas, boots, and knitwear. Frigid as it might be, there’s also something tranquil about a city layered with snow — and it’s something that has inspired W’s photographers throughout the years. Here, see the most stunning images inspired by the coldest season from the W archives, featuring Anna Ewers, Tilda Swinton, and more.
