‘Hey winter you’re early!’ Snow falls at Perisher, Thredbo


At the start of March it didn’t quite feel like summer had ended, and now at the tail-end of the month you could be forgiven for thinking we’ve arrived at winter very early.

While some might be mourning autumn, excitement has taken over on the slopes of Thredbo and Perisher, where the first snow of the year fell over the weekend.

The flurries began about 11am Saturday at Perisher, providing a small four centimetre dusting, spokesman Joss McAlpin said.

It was not unusual to get a bit of snow at this time of year, he said, with a few small snow falls generally expected in April before more consistent falls in May ahead of the official season.
