Lower Mainland blanketed in overnight snow fall
Residents of the Lower Mainland woke to 10-15 cm of fresh powder after an overnight snowfall. Most roads were passable with a few minor exceptions – Dec 30, 2021

Residents of British Columbia’s South Coast awoke Thursday morning to a thick coat of snow.

Whether the result was a winter wonderland or a snowy nightmare likely depended on whether you were a commuter or not, but for many the fresh white coating was magical.

Here’s a look at some of the best photos Global BC viewers snapped of the snowfall in their parts of the region.
