It was Sept. 30, the eve of winter tires being required on B.C. highways, and Sun Peaks was blanketed in inches of beautiful, wet snow.
A good reminder that winter is coming and winter driving conditions can come at any time in the mountains.
As of Monday Oct. 1 vehicles travelling on the majority of highways in B.C., including the road from Kamloops to Sun Peaks, are required to be equipped with tires that have a three peak mountain and snowflake symbol or a mud and snow symbol. The tires must also have at least 3.5 millimeters of tread.
More snow is expected to fall in the resort and Kamloops this week.
