Hilarious Photos & Videos Of People In Montreal Making The Most Of The Snow Day

TL;DR Below are compiled photos and videos showing Montrealers make the most of the snow day.

To celebrate Montreal and its ability to handle major snowstorms (and laugh off all of the accompanying dysfunction), we've compiled dozens of photos and videos of Montrealers making the most of the blizzard-y day.

Some of these are painfully relatable while others showcase some pretty hilarious snow survival techniques.

Stay safe out there!

First, we can all relate to this unfortunate situation:

Montreal commuters have to get creative.

It turns out this video was part of a creative marketing stunt! Watch how this video was created below:

And trying to find the silver lining:

Overheard in Montreal, where we've had 35 cm of snow overnight and it's still falling:

Even the police participate in the big joke that is Montreal after a storm:

If you must use your car, for everyone’s safety, adapt your driving to the #RoadConditions. Reduce your speed, increase your following distance and remove all the snow from the car. No mobile igloo. Be careful.#RoadSafety#SPVMpic.twitter.com/Bkg2h4kvlU

Public transit, of course, just can't handle it either.

At some point we all just give up.

Montrealers really know how to use the snow to their advantage:

The really satisfying pleasure of coming across an untouched snowscape:

Parking enforcement officers seem especially petty in all this snow:

Snow graffiti artists are everywhere, mocking your misery:

Even 40cm of snow can't stop Montrealers from biking to work.

Who needs proper winter attire?

And, finally, singing this song all day:
