Even though it may not feel like it in Prince Edward Island, today winter is officially over. After a season that has brought us 473cm of snow, it is safe to say that Islanders are prepared to greet spring with open arms. As we say farewell to one of the harshest winters in the Island’s history, let’s look back to celebrate the beauty that winter has given us. Many observe our Island’s natural beauty in the warm months when thousands flock to our sandy beaches. But some of the most stunning scenery can only be witnessed when you can see your breath and your nose tingles from the sub-zero temperatures. Even in the coldest of winter days and bitterest of winter nights, a picturesque moment can be found around every turn. Here are our favourite photos from this past season.
