Overnight Snow Brings Ski Season


THUNDER BAY – Roadways in and around Thunder Bay could be slippery today. Snowfall over night has left at least a two centimetre dusting of snow on city streets. While major arteries and sidewalks along major routes have been ploughed, side streets will take some time.

All schools are open, and school buses are on their normal routes.

Compared to southern Ontario where snowfall amounts of up to a metre and a half have fallen over the past couple of days, this minor dusting of snow is hardly an issue. Lucan Ontario received 177cm of the white stuff.

The forecast over the weekend is calling for cooler temperatures.

Mount Baldy Ski area is reporting that two runs are open, while Loch Lomond reports that they will be open on December 11th for skiers and snowboarders.
