Two days of snow followed by two days of clean up

That’s what happened after above zero temperatures took much of the snow from Whitehorse streets, causing organizers of winter festival Sourdough Rendezvous to seek snow from Mount Sima, and organizers of the Yukon Quest, which is set to start from Whitehorse on Feb. 7, to discuss other routes.

Then the snow came. And it didn’t stop for two days. This is what it looked like.

Note that the snow being plowed in the videos & photos has been building up most of the winter, it wasn’t just from the recent big storms. Oh, and winter carnival is still planning to buy snow off Mount Sima for the snow-carving contest.
