We've seen all the photos... but it's been your videos of Cornwall in the snow that have really had us gobsmacked!

Who knew Cornwall could be so stunning covered in white?

This week, snow, ice and wind battered the Duchy as the Met Office sent out a string of warnings across the region.

More than 200 schools closed and a major incident was declared as Cornwall Council called activated its Silver Command Centre at County Hall, warning between 10-20cm of snow could fall.

But you all handled it like the true Cornish troopers that you are!

From drones flying over the spectacular coastline to owners and their dogs throwing themselves down slopes on a sled, this is Cornwall in snow... as you filmed it.

1. If you want to be wowed, check out this awesome footage of St Ives from Blake Evans Drone...


2. And did you see the guy who took to his skis so he could keep saving our lovely pets?

3. Watch Penzance transform from sun to snow in this incredible time lapse video from Kyle...

4. We're guessing Graham and his handsome pup had a great time on this slope too!

5. Others weren't having such a great day. Joe McKnight sent us this video after a car skidded down a hill in St Ives, drove into a wall and caught fire.

6. But here's Polkerris looking a bit pretty in the drifts!

7. And some of us having been taking a leap of faith... 


8. Did anyone say white out?

9. We're loving Ben's edit of snow hitting Falmouth!

10.  Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside...
