Snapshot: Families make the best of snowy Boxing Day in Salmon Arm

South Broadview Elementary a popular sledding destination

Members of the Marion-Bell family, Jeff with daughter Amelie and son Lachlan, spent some time outdoors sledding on a hill at South Broadview Elementary on Boxing Day, Dec. 26, 2020. The day brought with it about four centimetres of snow that made for good sledding for several families at the school. More snow was in the forecast for Salmon Arm at least up until New Year’s Day.
