Early snow in New South Wales, Australia
More on the way
Up to 15 cm (5.9 inches) of snow has fallen on the Snowy Mountain peaks in the past 36 hours, prompting some alpine resorts to begin making artificial snow.
Light snow has also fallen across the ACT's Brindabellas and Namadgi National Park.
We are expecting even more snow over the Snowy Mountains in the next 24 hours or so, said forecaster Nick Bight.
Ski resorts are hopeful the cold snap is the start of a bumper season.
Susie Diver from Thredbo Resort says people have been surprised by the snow.
"There were so many people around the village here in Thredbo yesterday and most of them had laced their hiking boots up and were trying to head to Mt Kosciuszko but instead they were building snowmen and doing snow angels," she said.
