A few brave souls ventured out into the snow on Friday morning in Hope, from families with sleds in hand to dog walkers, to responsible business owners with shovels.

People headed to Kawkawa Lake, Sixth Avenue Park and Memorial Park to enjoy the bit of winter. The snow is expected to turn into rain by the afternoon, according to Environment Canada. That rain is forecasted to hang around for the next several days.
