The snow may have stopped but the problems are far from over.

Many people on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island/> woke up to a winter wonderland -- and all the challenges that come with it -- on Sunday morning.

Driving conditions, in particular, have been very slick, with 10 centimetres of snow falling on ice in Vancouver, up to 30 centimetres of snow falling in some areas of hard-hit Vancouver Island, and freezing conditions in the B.C. interior and north.

On the North/> Shore/>/>, there were numerous accidents and a car overturned on the Upper Levels Highway.

It was a very busy night for emergency rescuers, with 44 accidents in the Vancouver/>/> area on Saturday night and early Sunday compared with the usual three.

Drivers in areas of higher elevation, like Coquitlam and Port Moody, were the worst off.

Of course, the kids loved it, with Fred Chalut of Horseshoe/> Bay/>/> taking his son tobogganing.

"He was so excited to see snow. We had to go out," he said.

Odds of a white Christmas in Greater Vancouver were greatly increased.

There were also cancellations and delays at Vancouver/> International/> Airport/>/>, with those wanting to escape to a little sunshine and warmth having to wait it out in the cold a little longer as planes were de-iced.

Alisa Cooper at Vancouver International Airport said the airport was "fully operational" by Sunday morning, but that didn't prevent many airlines from delaying or cancelling flights.

Air Canada was particularly hard hit, cancelling many flights into the Interior of the province.

Meanwhile, some people on Vancouver Island were digging out from a great dump of the white stuff, with 34 centimetres having fallen on Nanaimo/>/> by Sunday.

"It's more than I think they were calling for," said one man digging out his drive.

Further north up the Island, in Campbell River/>/> it was still green. But in Victoria/>/>, people were being asked to stay home if possible to give road crews quieter streets to work on.

In the interior there were arctic conditions, with wind chill warnings for the Peace River region in northeastern B.C., the Kootenays and the North Columbia regions, with temperatures feeling like -40 degrees.

Saturday's snowfalls in Kelowna/>/> lead to the ditch for some drivers, and possibly one fatal accident.

"We just slid right on in with no control, nothing whatsoever," said one driver.

Steve Huchinson of the West Vancouver Fire Department said they would keep their trucks out to respond quickly to emergencies.

He had some advice for people commuting on Monday morning, including adding weight to their car trunks to give better traction to vehicles.

"Just take it slow, check your tires, and take transit if possible. If we can stay on top of roads they shouldn't be in that bad of a shape."
