Snag, Yukon, Canada
This famous highway sign in White River, Ontario proudly promotes it as "The Coldest Spot in Canada – 72 below Zero." It's a great sign — but it turns out it's a myth. The honor for the coldest city in Canada belongs to Snag, Yukon. Located in the valley of the White River in the Yukon Territory, Snag recorded a temperature of minus 81 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.8 degrees Celsius) on Feb. 3, 1947. That's the recorded lowest temperature in continental North America. The average temperatures in Snag are highs of 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 Celsius) and lows of 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 12.2 degrees Celsius). Winter is definitely the only season around these parts.
