The data for North Pole is wrong. It's probably not the only one.

I agree. Fairbanks is nearby, so I would use their data for North Pole.

BTW, it is not unusual for December to be the coldest month of the year. Even at my place here at 50 degrees North, December is the coldest month.

It's a toss up, but I voted for Pleasant Camp because it has dry summers, and very snowy winters (I love snow).

Alta is probably the sunniest (since its in Utah) and has decently warm summer days AND winter temperatures that are milder than the other continental subarctic climates, while getting a lot of snow. So probably Alta but I'd have to see the sunshine stats first.

Alta would be the winner for me if it weren't for the ridiculous snow totals.
I think I'll pick Tromsø as its winters are fairly mild and it doesn't get ridiculous snow totals and being north of the arctic circle, would get some interesting phenomenon like northern lights and midnight sun.

I choose Arosa. Nice and not too cold winters with a lot of snow, and wet summers, although they could be a bit warmer.

Arosa, followed by Alta, Pleasant Camp, Tromsø and Valdez. Their climates are among the best in the world for my taste, close to my ideal. Actually Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Riksgränsen and Severo-Kurilsk have very beautiful climates, too. The cities in Newfoundland are a little bit too cold during winter, but other than that they're perfectly fine. All the others, instead, are too dry in winter. I prefer snow over intense, dry cold.

I think I'll go with Sodankylä (but only if the snowfall stats are right, which I don't really know). Mainly because Labrador City (which is actually a bit closer to my dream climate, especially regarding precipiation) gets too much sunshine, especially in winter, cause it's too far south than I like. Sodankylä is too dry, but it still gets enough snow and has snowdepths of ~90cm, which is ok. Valdez is just too warm in winter and to prone to thaw, while Riksgränsen has too cool summers. All in all, I'm not really satisfied with Sodankylä cause it's far away from my dream climate, but I think I'll have to choose it.
