8 of the Best Snowy Westerns

To celebrate the release of new western The Timber, we explore the tradition of these breathtaking, snow-covered classics that showcase both sides of the beautiful rugged landscape. The stunning white mountains decorate the scenery but the freezing, unforgiving weather is how many meet their fate.

In The Timber, set during the 1898 gold rush of the Old West, two brothers take a job as bounty hunters to save their family home and track down their father. But in this tale of greed and redemption, what they find is more than they bargained for.
