A Photo Walk in Whistler's First Snowfall of the Year

There is something magical about the first big snowfall of each winter. Tonight we got our first big dump here in Whistler, and of course I took my camera for a walk.

The first snowfall warning of the year always brings me a huge amount of excitement. Tonight, upon arriving home, I saw snowflakes the size of pancakes falling from the sky. I knew it was going to make for a pretty sweet photo walk, even if I didn't venture further than 100 feet from my front door!

Winter is coming, and here is some photographic evidence that it might already be here: 

The commute was a rough one, to say the least.
