There's still several weeks left until the official start of winter, but parts of the country are already looking and feeling more like the frosty season.
Heavy snow in western Canada has some people eager to get outdoors and officials are reminding everyone to keep safety in mind.
RCMP in Saskatchewan say many lakes are not completely frozen yet. On Saturday, a 43-year-old man died after his snowmobile was found partially submerged through the ice of a lake.
Fresh snowfall in the mountains has also made for ripe avalanche terrain.
Several popular ski resorts have opened early for business, but with the increased accumulation also comes the increased risk for slides.
Five snow slides have already been reported in separate locations so far, and specialists encourage skiers to get educated on avalanche safety.
