#WinterWonderland anyone?

The icy offerings of nature that rarely grace Victoria have been billowing down on the capital city persistently for nearly 24 hours now, creating a rather picturesque scene.

Island residents woke up to a blanket of snow softening their steps on Monday morning – the first of its kind in 2020.

Some chose to stay snuggled up in the warmth of their homes, others braved the winter weather to get to work and school, and still others whipped out their cameras to capture the gentle flakes as they accumulated on the streets of Victoria.

You’ve heard about how the snow impacted transportation and what the rest of the week holds for us in terms of weather.

Now, take a look at some of our top picks for photos and videos of Victoria’s first snowfall in 2020:

Anyone else experience a whirl wind of weather yesterday evening? This was up by Mt Washington during sunset…or close to it. The clouds were thin enough to allow the sun to shine through creating a fire red/orange while dumping snow down on us during our snowshoe hike. What a great way to spend the weekend. Now the snow is down in Victoria! #mattshannonphotography – – – – – – – – – – – #strathconapark #strathconaprovincialpark #mtwashington #mtwashingtonvalley #snowshoeing #snowshoeingadventures #wintercamping #wintercampingtrip #wintercamp #explorebc #explorevictoria #explorevancouverisland #explorevanisle #vanisle #sharevi #amazingvancouverisland #vancouverisland #beautifulbc #visitvictoria #victoriabuzz #strathconapark #bcparks #bchikes #comoxvalleybc #landscapephotography #campingtrip #trekwest #snowphotography #comoxvalley
