Horror Novels set (largely) in Winter/Snow

For some reason I find a good horror story set in the cold and snow of winter (or the arctic) to be one of the 'coziest' reads. I can think of a few of such books (some of them iconic and some more obscure) and I would love to hear the recommendations of others. A significant portion of the novel needs to take place in this type of setting for it to qualify. But it needn't be the absolute entirety of the story.

(I'm only recommending books that I think have artistic merit anyway and would appreciate it if others did the same. Please don't recommend a winter horror tale that you actually found to be a lousy read. Cheers!)
