The Canadian Avalanche Centre issued a snowfall warning earlier on Thursday for eastern B.C. and western Alberta, and based on social media's reaction, it was not a moment too soon.
While the massive dump definitely requires people to proceed with caution, for people in Revelstoke, B.C., it also makes for some pretty pictures.
The snow was captured by professional snowboarder Leanne Pelosi.
