It mostly rains in Vancouver in the winter so if I want snow I have to go up into the mountains or into the interior of the province. Here are some of my favourite snow shots from BC.
Snow-laden trees at Silver Star Mountain Ski Resort near Vernon.
When it’s snowing and the sun comes out the snow flakes sparkle like they do on a Christmas card, but the photograph shows this sparkle as rainbow-edged bokeh. (Blackcomb at Whistler)
Larch trees in the snow up on Fernie mountain.
Snow-laden trees on Hwy 5 near Hope, BC – wonderful to look at but a bit of a nightmare to drive in…
‘Selfie’ from the ski lift on Red Mountain in Rossland, BC – mine are the narrow pointed skis which are apparently so vintage they would be better used in a snow fence than for skiing.
A river of clouds covers the valley at Revelstoke Mountain.
Cold winter in snow country near Kamloops. BC.
Did I say it rarely snows in Vancouver? If it does, people go nuts and build snow caves to house the sudden influx of snowmen…
I know I’m coming home when I spot the Coastal Mountains from the plane. More of Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Snowy.
