The snow dances have been working!

Snow has been falling over Thredbo for the past 24 hours, with storm totals now hitting 40cm up high and 20cm all the way down in the village.

The white stuff is all thanks to a powerful cold front that swept into the Snowy Mountains on Monday evening and brought blizzards from early morning Tuesday.

The cold front looks like it is set to stick around, too, with temperatures dropping to a maximum of 2 °C and low of -4 °C, setting the resort up for an awesome opening weekend.
