A spectacular new video has been released of yesterday’s snowfall on Table Mountain.

Local mountain guide and hiking expert Justin Hawthorne filmed this show from the summit of Table Mountain, with a reasonable flurry of snow visible as Justin pans across the landscape with his camera. By 7 am on Sunday morning, the temperature had dipped below 4 degrees on the peak.




Sunday’s snowfall got Capetonians into a frenzy as videos and photos emerged of the winter wonderland.
