Snow builds on summits

The weather in the valley may be improving as we head into the weekend, but that is not the case at higher elevations.

Snow can be seen on highway cameras at the Pennask Summit, and the Bullet Cam at Big White Ski Resort is also showing some powder that appears to be accumulating.

Environment Canada's forecast for the next few days calls for sunshine and highs in the teens but overnight lows could dip down below zero, in fact, they are predicting the mercury to drop to -1 overnight Saturday into Sunday morning.

Big White opens for the first run of the season on Nov. 22, and if you're traveling in the mountain passes in B.C. you are required to have winter tires on your vehicle.

While M+S tires with 3.5 mm tread are the minimum requirement for winter driving, it is highly recommended you use snowflake logo'd tires on routes like the Coquihalla or anywhere that severe winter conditions are likely to occur.
