Wendighosts are burly, 8' tall, satan-browed bipeds that terrorize mountainous forests and polar climes.  Shaggy white fur makes them almost invisible in the snows, so they Surprise on 1-4 on 1d6 in such environs.

If a wendighost successfully strikes with both claws in the same round, it crushes with a powerful hug for another 2d8 damage.

Highly intelligent, wendighosts are proficient with Ancient tools and artifacts.  And they are straight-up the most malicious and bloodthirsty beasts in the Scooby-Doomsiverse, as they've been known to hurl crushing barrels, lob explosives, pitch enemies off cliffs, and even tie kidnapped victims to lumber-mangling buzzsaws!

Seriously.  They're brutal.
