While most residents of Regina are busy planting gardens and tending to lawns, there is one place in the city that remains buried under a mountain of snow: the snow dump.
The snow storage site, at Fleet Street and McDonald Street, collected 1.5 million cubic metres of snow through a winter season that led to the dump being open five weeks longer than usual.
In some spots the snow was piled 30 metres high.
Even though the site closed in mid-April, the mound of snow remains. However, instead of a striking pile of white, the snow dump is a mostly unsightly shade of brown in a field of muck.
The continued presence of the snow has led to speculation over whether or not it will melt, entirely, before snow falls again in Regina.
