skyrim winterholdWinterhold is a city located on the northeastern tip of Skyrim. It is the home of the College of Winterhold.

The city was once large, bustling and prosperous. In 4E 122, a cataclysmic event known as the “Great Collapse” occurred, in which most of the city fell into the Sea of Ghosts. Winterhold now only consists of a few rudimentary buildings and the College of Winterhold, the only original structure still standing. The remaining inhabitants of Winterhold suspect the College of causing the city’s destruction, although the College believes that it was caused as a result of the earthquake in Vivec and subsequent eruption of Red Mountain in Morrowind.
