"Winter 2001"

Photo taken from Heart's Content barrens on the Baccalieu Trail.

Location: Heart's Content Barrens

2001 Winter was a record breaker with respects to snowfall. This photo was taken April 13, 2001.  A series of winter storms hit eastern Newfoundland breaking all previous accumulative snow fall records at 648.2 cm's (That's 255 inches or 21 feet, which is more than the record totals for any other major city in Canada!). Some drifts reached over 16 feet high, as seen in the photo above. 

Winter is a busy time all across Newfoundland for enthusiasts and novices alike. Snowmobiling , Ice Fishing , Alpine (Downhill) Skiing and Nordic (Cross-Country) Skiing, Snow-shoeing, or Dogsledding adventures are all waiting for you to enjoy.
