We've all heard of a white Christmas, but a white Easter?
Well kids and adults alike were treated to a snow-filled Easter celebration at the Corin Forest Mountain Resort over the long weekend.
The annual children's Easter egg hunt was held at Corin for the fourth year, beginning on Saturday and continuing through until to Monday.
However, the free egg hunts were booked up weeks ago.
Across the four days of egg hunting Corin receives almost 2000 visitors and gives away about 17,000 Easter eggs.
The highlight of this year's event was the addition of a snow play area thanks to a new snow machine nicknamed 'the Yeti'.
It can produce a snow-like cover irrespective of the weather conditions, unlike other snow making equipment.
Corin Forest managing director Dane Liepins said despite the unseasonally warm conditions in the last few weeks the Yeti had provided a good covering of snow.
"The Yeti will let us extend the start and end of our snow season, and keep a good cover up from start to end," Mr Liepins said.
"This investment is the first stage of our development plan over the next few years."
He said the Easter snow the Yeti had produced had proven the capacity of the machine and would change Corin's capabilities into the future.
For Michelle Kerr it was the first time her children Sophie, 9, James, 7, and Lucy, 5, got to see snow, and it was a big hit.
"It was pretty crazy to turn up to the snow in shorts and T-shirts," Mrs Kerr said.
Visiting from Sydney the snow at Corin made the children's top three list of best things in Canberra, along with the AIS and Questacon.
Mrs Kerr said the family were not big skiers so Corin was perfect for children of their age rather than the major ski resorts in the Snowy Mountains.
And the children still got to experience snow, go tobogganing, make snowmen and have snowball fights.
It was also great for a family on a budget she said.
However, she added that it was more icy than natural snow and highly recommended bringing or hiring proper snow gear to keep you dry.
Bonython resident James Boyle brought his very excited children along to the Easter egg hunt.
He said it was particularly convenient as Corin is only about a half-hour drive from Tuggeranong.
"We try something different every year [for Easter]," Mr Boyle said.
"But since we've tried this we think we'll go every year."
He said his children didn't get to try out the snow play area on this visit but having seen it on Saturday he's sure they'll be making another trip soon to give it a go.
Mr Liepins said the snow play area and tobogganing would continue through the second week of the ACT school holidays including Anzac Day, finishing on April 28.
There are sessions at 11am and 2pm each day and it costs $20 per person.
