The scene at Greenaway Park in Cloverdale Saturday afternoon

Greenaway Park in Cloverdale, home to an inviting, rolling hillside, acted like a magnet Saturday, thanks to the first snowfall of the season.

Dozens of kids – under the watchful eye of parents – hit the slopes with plastic sleds, saucers, snow scooters, and toboggans, carefully trying to avoid some muddy patches.

B.C.’s south coast awoke to a blanket of snow Nov. 20. A snowstorm deposited between 5 and 10 cms of the white stuff, wreaking havoc for some drivers in parts of Surrey earlier in the day, but creating a winter wonderland for those who were able to get out and enjoy it.

The weekend weather forecast was calling for more chilly temperatures for Sunday, with lows of -2 degrees and highs of 0 degrees in the afternoon.
