Capetonians were elated to find that Table Mountain was covered in snow on Saturday, August 29. Snow can still be seen on the mountain on Sunday morning [August 30], and the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway (TMAC) has announced that visitors will be permitted to visit.

If you’re brave enough to come and see the snow on the summit, come and take a cableway trip to the top. The birthday special also applies today!” TMAC Managing Director Wahida Parker said via Twitter. 

Speaking to SABC News, she advised visitors to come dressed warmly as temperatures have dropped to below 2°C. The snow is also about two to three centimetres deep and quite slippery.
