PHOTOS: Throwback to Cornwall covered in snow

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:01am 23rd December 2018.

Every Christmas movie has that snowy, heartwarming backdrop that leaves you longing for a super festive setting yourself, but this might be as close as Cornwall gets!

It is over a decade since the Duchy last saw flurries on December 25th.

We did have the Beast from the East this year but face it, that is not the same!

So, for everyone who really wants the white stuff, we have rounded up some snaps of snowy Kernow.

Who says we couldn't feature in a Christmas film?

Cornwall's dogs even loved it...

Nothing prepares you for the sight of snow-topped cliffs...

The snowflakes even made our high streets Christmas card perfect...

What do surfers do on snow days? Sledging on bodyboards of course!

It's just so exciting, you have to make a snow angel!

Snow on the beach is baffling but who cares when it looks this stunning?

Very glad we are not running lifeguard courses in Cornwall til the end of March! As if storm Fionn and his mates weren’t enough, now the county has been thrown into chaos with its first proper dump of snow in 8 years! Careful out there folks I heard there’s an avalanche warning for the Fistral sand dunes 😊❄️☃️. . . . #snowday #snowcornwall #uksnow #beachsnow #beachlifeguards #beachlife #bestsummerjob #bealifeguard #fistralbeach #fistral #towan #towanbeach #cornwall #cornwallsnow #snowsurf #snowwaves #vsco #cornwalligers #thegreatoutdoors #outdoorinstructor #outdoorinstructorlife #outdoorinstructortraining #kernow #kernowsnow #kernowstyle #uksurf #surfuk #surfer

And this untouched with clear blue skies...

It just looks like the Arctic...

And there was enough snow to actually ski...
