Skiers and snowboarders might not be able to get there to soak it up due to coronavirus restrictions, but Perisher has recorded its first snowfall of the year.
The ski resort had three centimetres of snow overnight, ahead of even larger falls expected in the coming days.
It's estimated 40 centimetres will fall at Perisher over the weekend, as a cold front sweeps across the south of NSW and the ACT.
A Perisher spokesman said it was expected the snow would fall continuously, with the bulk of it expected on Thursday night.
"It's still snowing currently and we're expecting colder temperatures tonight," the spokesman said.
"We're expecting snow right through until Saturday morning."
The ski season may be more than a month away, but the Perisher spokesman said it was not uncommon for falls to start in late April.
"We normally see some significant falls during April and May, but most of them come in late May and into June," he said.
While some coronavirus restrictions were being lifted, there is uncertainty as to whether the 2020 ski season will be able to go ahead as normal.
The spokesman did not say whether the ski resort had contingency plans in place should Perisher not be able to open during the winter.
"We'll continue to follow the restrictions that government has in place, and that will dictate our capacity," he said.
Further snow is expected across the Snowy Mountains, with falls forecast above 1100 metres.
Friday's forecast has predicted snow to fall at altitudes as low as 800 metres.
A severe weather warning is in effect for damaging winds in the Snowy Mountains, south-west slopes and southern parts of the ACT.
Gusts averaging 90km/h are expected, with peak speeds of 120km/h forecast for alpine areas above 1900 metres.
While Canberra suburbs aren't expected to see snow, falls have been predicted for elevated areas to the south of the territory including the Brindabellas.
