Cypress Mountain received its first dusting of snow this morning and they captured the frosty occasion on Facebook.

A video taken from the bottom of the hill shows snowfall beginning to stick to the ground.  

The news comes as Grouse Mountain received its first dusting yesterday, while Whistler received its first snowfall back in September.


Cypress Mountain: Low Pressure Centre

South Surrey and White Rock also had a torrential hailstorm yesterday that left many residents wondering it was actually an unseasonably early snowfall.

Environment Canada explains the snow and hail is due to a particularly low pressure centre over the lower mainland.
