The popular ski and snowboard resort had its first snowfall of the season back in September. Its webcam at the bottom of Catskinner Chair recorded the dusting stating that, “Rain in the valley means..”

People took to their Instagram accounts to share the excitement, as Blackcomb gears up for another season.

Best thing to wake up to :) #snow #onlyinwhistler

A couple of days ago Blackcomb posted a picture on Instagram that displayed a thick coating of powder at the bottom of the hill from the Roundhouse Webcam.

Cold Front: Whistler and the Lower Mainland

The lower mainland  thought it had an unseasonably early snowfall a couple of days ago when South Surrey and White Rock were coated in hail. Coquitlam had an earlier scare back in September.

Cypress Mountain and Grouse Mountain received their first snowfalls this week, as well.

Environment Canada says that all the cold, frosty weather is due to a low pressure front over the lower mainland.
