Snow continues to fall at higher elevations across the Interior

Snow falls at local ski resorts

UPDATE: 10:10 a.m.

Snow continues to fall at high elevations across the Interior Wednesday morning, bringing more of the white stuff to local ski resorts.

The freezing level dropped as low as 700 metres in the Okanagan Valley Wednesday morning, and snow fell on the Okanagan Connector and the Coquihalla Summit.

And webcams from Big White, SilverStar, Sun Peaks and Revelstoke and Apex all show new snow is falling on the slopes and at the resorts' villages.

The ski and board season is still a ways away though, with Sun Peaks aiming for a Nov. 20 opening day, followed by Big White on Nov. 25, Revelstoke on Nov. 27, SilverStar on Dec. 3 and Apex on Dec. 5.

Environment Canada says the freezing level in the Okanagan is expected to rise to 1,200 metres by noon.
