Snow-covered conifers, mountains and a frozen lake.

It looks like winter in Canada is officially starting to arrive in some parts of the country. A new video showing Quebec’s weekend whiteout has been shared — and it looks pretty wild!

On Saturday, October 17, the municipality of Chartierville was so buried in snow that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was January.

In one video, conditions in the region looked pretty intense, as super-thick snow could be seen covering the trees and ground in somebody’s garden.

Chartierville is located in the Estrie region of Quebec and is therefore pretty close to the Canada-U.S. border.

While conditions in the area were pretty intense on Saturday, it could be a sign of what's to come for the rest of Canada this winter.

Earlier this year, the Canadian Farmers' Almanac predicted that the country is in for an extra cold and snowy winter this year.

That said, things are going to look pretty different from coast to coast and the weather is expected to be much better in places like the Maritimes.

With that in mind, it might be time to break out your warmest winter jacket, eh Canada?
