2023 First Snow Contest

We have a Winner. Thank you to the 235 participants who played the 2023 edition of the First Snow Contest. The first snow flakes hit Montreal downtown on November 9th in the morning. At 8:42 a.m. Ste-Catherine Street was covered of snow. The 2023 winner is Laura F. She picked November 9th at 9:05 a.m. and was the closest. Congratulations to her!
