Winters is a town in EarthBound. It is located in the region of Foggyland. Winters is the hometown of Jeff, one of Ness's allies who accompanies him to defeat Giygas.


Winters is located in Foggyland, a country to the north of Eagleland. The town is covered in snow, and has many trees around it. The northern half of the town is separated from the southern half by a large lake where a sea monster dubbed Tessie lives. The northern half is known for Snow Wood Boarding School, and the town's shop. The southern half has many caves, such as the Brick Road Maze, and Rainy Circle dungeon. Dr. Andonuts's lab is also located in the southern half.

Winters is first introduced to the story after Ness and Paula are locked underneath the graveyard in Threed, when Paula contacts Jeff telepathically to help them. Jeff awoke in Snow Wood Boarding House and knew he had to leave. At this point the player takes control of Jeff and his roommate Tony. After leaving with the Bad key machine, the two are stopped by the gate of the school. Jeff climbs on Tony's back, and the two part ways. Jeff then has to traverse through Winters to get to Threed to rescue the friends he had never met. He goes to his father's lab and take the Sky Runner to Threed.

After rescuing Paula from Geldegarde Monotoli, Ness, Paula and Jeff learn that they must go to Summers to advance their journey. They returned to Threed to repair the damaged Sky Runner so that they could return to Winters to get Dr. Andonuts to modify it so they could travel to Summers. While doing so, the group went to investigate a cave near Stonehenge. There, they fought Shrooom! to get the melody of Rainy Circle.

Later, the group had to return to Winters to help save Apple Kid. They then teleported to Winters, and had to go down the same path that Jeff had to take originally to get to Dr. Andonuts's lab, where Apple Kid was last. Ness and his friends will find much stronger enemies than Jeff had at first. After making it to the lab, Apple Kid's mouse will hand over the Eraser eraser to get into Stonehenge base. After saving everyone from the Starman DX, they returned to Dr. Andonuts's lab. From that point on, Winters is not necessary to go to again.
