Vancouver’s in a daze after a heavy duvet of snow fell overnight. We woke up on Tuesday, December 20, to an additional 24 cm of snow – and it was hard to miss.

Vancouver’s still digging out from a blanket of snow that fell overnight. It was so cold that the snow was even going inside the SkyTrain cars.

The snow obscured the roads, and major intersections were virtually unrecognizable.

While the snow was beautiful, it was also dangerous.



We do not recommend skiing or snowshoeing on the road, but it’s a clever workaround when buses and cars are stalled all over the streets.
