Locals took to local hills to have some fun and Mill Lake Park transformed into a winter wonderland

Abbotsford was blanketed by about five centimetres of snow on Sunday (Dec. 5) night into Monday (Dec. 6) morning.

Public schools remained open, but several private schools opted to close.

The Abbotsford News checked out snow activity on the toboggan hills at Rotary Stadium and also took a walk in the winter wonderland that Mill Lake Park was transformed into.
