Winter has yet to release B.C. from its icy grip.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Highway 3, from Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass, and Trans-Canada Highway, from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass, due to what they said is late-season snowfall.

“A frontal system moving through British Columbia will give late season snow to Kootenay and Rogers Passes. Light snow will begin Monday afternoon and intensify on Tuesday morning,” reads the alert.
