Major snowstorm hits Alberta, Saskatchewan

Snow in Calgary, 23 October 2012 (TWN)

Residents of southern Alberta and central Saskatchewan were digging out today after the first major snowstorm of the season.

Calgary received about 15 cm, Lethbridge had 24 cm and Brooks was walloped with about 30 cm.

Gusty winds also led to cold wind chills.

The early snow means some ski resorts in the Rockies will open this weekend giving skiers one of the earliest starts to the season ever.
