No snow, just freezing weather here in Vancouver over the weekend. This morning we got a very light dusting of snow, but not enough to impede tire grip. I try to avoid roads with any traffic on the way in to work; fortunately there are a couple of sections of bike path on the way in. Still lots of people riding, even at 7 in the morning. I counted at least a dozen tracks in the dusting of snow, both coming and going.
Even if it snows, usually the first day is not a problem; the stuff is still soft enough to ride thru. It only gets tricky when it gets pressed down by cars & turned to ice, or turned into ice by a thaw/refreeze cycle. A fixed gear helps.
