The entrance to Yangmingshan's Datun Nature Park, located 800 meters above sea level, is blanketed in snow Monday. According to the Taipei Police Department's Traffic Division, traffic controls have been imposed at key entrances to areas of Yangmingshan where snow has fallen.

The Erziping parking lot, located near the Datun park area on Balaka Road, is also covered in thick snow.
