Plenty of snow on the farm in the Hanover district and the Swartberg mountains are covered in snow.
Not sure if both sides of the mountains but if it is, then it really would be a spectacular trip over the Swartberg Pass.

SABC news implies that several passes in the area a closed due to the snow. Swartberg is gravel, which would be quite a challenge at the best of times...

News24 has two photos, the fake one and a genuine one, which is far less dramatic:

Also E-Cape snow, which is more widespread:

Matroosberg had some decent snow along the 2x4 trail this morning. Still had some light snow falling around 9 am.

I didn't get a good view today because of the clouds, but all evidence is that there were masses of snow across all the mountains in the SW-Cape above 1200m elevation. If the weather clears tomorrow, this should be visible from CT.
