19 photos of a white Christmas in Metro Vancouver

Dec 20 2017, 3:20 am

Parts of the Metro Vancouver region have been experiencing a White Christmas since Christmas Eve.

Neighbourhoods located in the upper elevations of Coquitlam, Port Moody, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver received a measurable dusting of snow during the early morning hours of Christmas Eve. And for the most part, the snow has not melted.

Closer to Vancouver, snow also fell at Simon Fraser University’s campus atop Burnaby Mountain.

But of course, the clear winners are the North Shore mountains:

  • Cypress Mountain
    • 24 Hour Snow: Trace
    • 48 Hour Snow: n/a
    • 7 Day Snow: 180 cm
  • Grouse Mountain
    • 24 Hour Snow: 8 cm
    • 48 Hour Snow: 40 cm
    • 7 Day Snow: 120 cm
  • Mount Seymour
    • 24 Hour Snow: 24 cm
    • 48 Hour Snow: 71 cm
    • 7 Day Snow: 171 cm

Further north at Whistler Blackcomb, 73 cm of new snow has fallen over the past week, including 17 cm of new snow from the last 48 hours.

With low freezing levels and the arrival of another moisture system, more snow is expected for the slopes on the North Shore and Whistler Blackcomb this Boxing Day weekend.
