More bad weather for Lower Mainland

VANCOUVER —   Environment Canada has dropped wind warnings for the south coast, but blustery weather continues to cause problems -- delaying early ferry runs to Vancouver Island and leaving more than seven-thousand customers in the dark across the Island and Greater Vancouver.

    Winds forced suspension of the Grouse Mountain skyride service last night, trapping about 200 people, including as many as 70 elementary school students from Surrey, at the top of the mountain for several hours -- although they remained safe and warm in the chalet.

    The wicked weather continues in other parts of the province, where Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for much of northeastern B-C -- from the Bulkley Valley east to Prince George and the Peace region.

    As much as 15 centimetres is expected before tapering to flurries late today -- and travellers are warned to expect dangerous driving conditions, with visibility reduced by the heavy snow.
