CAPE TOWN - Normally a cold snap sees people staying indoors, diving for their blankets.

But brave snow watchers have descended on Sutherland to witness and frolic in the white stuff dusting the landscape.

WATCH: Woman shares video after seeing snow for the first time

Temperatures in the Northern Cape town dropped to -9 degrees, leaving the area covered in a blanket of snow.

Local guesthouse owner Juanita Hutchings says that guests couldn’t wait to get outside.

“Some of our guests had another cappuccino at a local restaurant while they waited for the pass to be opened. It was amazing and a great privilege for the guests to experience the snow and the town.”
