As far as snow day activities go, it was certainly inventive.
Heavy snowfall swept the region again on Wednesday, with parts of Norwich recording as much as 25cm.
And, rather than staying indoors, one person decided to tackle Norwich’s steepest hill - by snowboard.
Willie Steil filmed the footage of a snowboarder taking on Gas Hill, a 300-metre long stretch which has a gradient of roughly 16pc at its steepest.
He later posted on Twitter to say he’d taken a turn at the run and fallen over twice - but that the snow made for a soft landing.
