This Week in History: The Big Snow, Victoria, February 1916

Using archival film footage, photos and newspaper stories, this CHEK-TV/Royal BC Museum item looks back on Victoria’s legendary “Big Snow” of February 2-5, 1916.

“Most of us in Victoria, BC, remember the Big Snow of 1996, but imagine putting up with the same sort of thing a century ago. With no weather satellite warnings, big diesel snow ploughs, or Ski-Doos, it would have been a very different story.” (CHEK intro)
