While it’s barely snowed so far this winter, last year, most of Ontario was under an extreme cold alert to kick off January.
And the cold was particularly experienced in Niagara Falls, which seized up to look like a frozen winter wonderland.
And it made its mark around the world.
Every winter, as temperatures dip below freezing in Ontario, Niagara Falls forms icy layers surrounded by snow, leaving the beautiful landscape that’s now been witnessed globally.
But the Falls aren’t ever at risk of fully freezing over.
“It doesn’t freeze fully because of the amount of water that’s coming down the falls. It will have ice, and a lot of ice around it, but based on the amount of water that’s going over it, it will never fully freeze over,” Chris Greenhalgh, Marketing Manager at Niagara Falls Tourism, told Daily Hive last year.
Greenhalgh also said that this shows the different sides of Niagara Falls, which is usually a popular summer destination.
Now if only the temperatures could dip a little more in Ontario this winter…
In case you missed it last year, check out these incredible photos of the icy Niagara Falls below.
