Cold Weather Flying allows the player to ride flying mounts in Northrend.
Once you arrive in the frost-covered lands of Northrend in Wrath of the Lich King Classic ™, your mounts will get you where you need to go, but only on the ground. However, with Cold Weather Flying, you can conquer the biting chill of the Northrend air in no time, so bundle up and get ready.
Cold Weather Flying grants the ability to use a flying mount (epic or non-epic) or Druid flight form in Northrend, if you know at least Expert Riding or Flight Form. It can be trained at level 77 from the Cold Weather Flying trainers in Northrend for 1,000 Gold. Alternatively, it can be learned from Tome of Cold Weather Flight, a single-use, account-bound item you can purchase for 1,000 Gold and send to alts.
This is a passive ability that does not replace your existing flying skill, so you will still need to pay the full cost if you still need to train Artisan Riding for swift flying mounts/flight form.

To learn Cold Weather Flying, you must be level 77 and know Expert Riding or Flight Form (Druids). When you’re ready, head to the following trainers to learn:
While learning Expert and Artisan Riding skills through the Cold Weather Flying trainers is possible, you can benefit from reputation discounts from Maigra Keenfeather in Valiance Keep (Alliance) or Wind Rider Sabamba in Warsong Hold (Horde) in Borean Tundra.
Also, depending on your reputation, there may be deeper discounts through Hargen Bronzewing at Honor Hold or Wind Rider Jahubo at Thrallmar in Hellfire Peninsula.
Need a lift but don’t have Cold Weather Flying yet? No worries. A loaner mount is available from “Honest” Max at K3 in Storm Peaks for those level 77 or higher. Fair warning, these flying mounts are a little sluggish and somewhat stubborn; they will only fly at 60% within Storm Peaks, Sholozar Basin, and Icecrown.
After your first character has reached level 80 and has Cold Weather Flying, you’ll be able to get the Tome of Cold Weather Flight from Hira Snowdawn for your alts. Each alt that you plan to level through Northrend will need to be sent a Tome of Cold Weather Flight if you want them to be able to take to the skies at level 68.
