Elliot and Maelle Snyder discovered a toboggan hill at Williams Park that enabled them to get some serious air on Monday.

Another snow day proclaimed for Langley

A Langley family found a fun and high-flying way to spend the day Monday.

Just a few minutes ago, the Langley School District announced that all classes will once again be closed on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

The closure impacts the schools and all district facilities – including the board offices and the BCIT program and daycares that are located within school district facilities.

The announcement came in just after 8 p.m. on Monday night, confirming that the school district has joined a number of others in the Lower Mainland proclaiming Tuesday as another snow day.

A Langley family, Kevin Snyder took his children – eight-year-old Elliot and six-year-old Maelle, to Williams Park in the Harmsworth neighbourhood Monday.

They found what Snyder describes as a “great toboggan hill.”

Someone built a “little jump” in the middle of the hill, giving the kids a chance to catch some pretty serious air.

“My kids were game to try it out!,” Snyder said.

He was equipped with his iPhone to catch the kids having fun.

“They must have hit the jump 15 to 20 times. We sat in the snow, drank our hot chocolate, and were thankful for a day of adventure!” Snyder shared.

What did you do for fun on snow day? What kinds of suggestions do you have to help fill the day on Langley’s second sequential snow day?
