On the last few days of August, as Spring Day approached, snow began to fall on the peaks across the Western Cape. Locals raced up Table Mountain to photograph themselves in the snow – doing everything from tonguing the white powder to stripping and mooning the camera. People like us raced up to the Cape Winelands to behold the white peaks that for just about every other week in the year are bare and brown against the sky.
Being the final week of winter, it was as though the season was not quite ready to give up and wanted to give us one last show. A snow show.
While the rest of our Marketing Team headed to the Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl for wine by the fire, our two videographers gloved up and spent a few hours capturing the snow on the upper peaks of the Du Toitskloof Mountain, between Paarl and Worcester, about 70 kilometres from Cape Town.
Did you know: The Du Toits Peak is the highest peak in the Western Cape within direct sight of the ocean.
