It’s beginning to look a lot like winter on Metro Vancouver’s mountains and local ski hills were quick to express their excitement about last night’s snowfall on social media.

Grouse Mountain shared a photo on Instagram of a blanket of snow at Santa’s Workshop.

The North Vancouver ski resort saw a very light dusting of snow in October, but this time around the white stuff is expected to stick around.

According to Grouse Mountain’s weather forecast, the resort will see a high of -1°C and -2°C tomorrow, accompanied by flurries.

West Vancouver’s Cypress Mountain also saw a “nice dusting” of overnight snow.

“And our snowmaking crews are hard at work, firing up our snowmaking system,” said the resort on Instagram.

According to Cypress Mountain’s Joffrey Koeman, “winter is right on time.”

“Historical average opening date is December 1 give [or] take a week. Last year was December 3,” he told Daily Hive via email.

“We have colder temps coming in now which will allow us to fire up or snow gun fleet in the next few days. Once we fire the guns we can go from green to white overnight and be up a running very soon.”
