Curious to see which one cold lovers would enjoy more...

Both are terrible but I choose Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky... seems less snowy.

St Johns really close to where i'm from and the summer is far warmer than that other place.

I enjoy a bit of dreary weather but neither of these looks all that appetising. Petrapavlovsk basically has six months of winter and six months of spring/autumn and St Johns has a hell of a lot of precipitation days, plus I don't like those climates where March is colder than December. I'd be curious to experience what a foggy and windy climate is like as those two things don't often come together in my experience. Their May gets about as much snow as our normal winter, and they are both further south and on the coast! I'll go with St Johns, just, and partially because I have more info for there to base a decision on.

The warmer temperatures in St. John's make it a little better.

St John's (aka Anchorage)

Warmer temps and warmer people.

Since they seem about the same otherwise, I picked Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for the cooler summers.

St. John's for warmer, less rainy summers.

The main attraction of St. John's is the increased snowfall, but I don't think it makes up for the warmer winters. Petropavlovsk hasn't even cracked 40F in January or February. I think the feel of how snowy it is would even out, with Petropavlovsk having less precipitation but more of it coming in the form of snow, plus colder temperatures with pretty much no thawing vs. frequent thawing in St. John's. Both place's summers are equally nice in my view.

So Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky wins out.
