We’ve got a way to make the first major snowfall to hit Toronto this winter a little more bearable.

We’re looking for your guess as to when we’ll get at least 5 cm of snow. If you’re right, you could win one these great prizes.

The prizes include:

  • One night’s accommodation at Horseshoe Resort, in one of the newly renovated Deluxe Rooms (sleeps four), including four all-access day ski passes and four one hour ski lessons with the qualified instructors at Horseshoe’s Snow School
  • An Ariens Snow Thrower, courtesy of Home Depot.


Here are the rules:

  • Submit your guess as to what date we’ll get our first snowfall of at least 5 cm as measured at Pearson International Airport’s weather station and confirmed by Environment Canada
  • It must be one continuous snowfall “event.” If the snow continues over the course of 2 days (i.e. starts at 10 p.m. and ends at 4 a.m.), entries submitted for both dates will be entered into the draw
  • Entries must be submitted by email to news.to@citynews.caEntries must have “Snow Contest” and your guess in the subject line (i.e. Snow Contest Dec. 15, 2012)
  • Correct submissions will be entered into random draw for one of the four prizes above
  • One entry per person


Winners will be announced on air by one of our meteorologists during CityNews at Six after the first snowfall of at least 5 cm.
