Residents on British Columbia’s south coast woke up Thursday morning to a thick layer of snow.

Whether the result was a winter wonderland or a snow-covered nightmare probably depended on whether you were a commuter or not, but for many, the fresh white coating was magical.

Here’s a look at some of the best photos that Global BC viewers took of the snowfall in their parts of the region.
