Snow started settling on Australia’s highest mountains on Wednesday night. By Friday morning, some ski resorts had picked up more than 30cm (a foot) of fresh snow.

More snow is forecast for parts of Tasmania, Victoria and NSW over the weekend. By Sunday, some parts of the alps will have seen more than half a metre of fresh snow, an impressive dump for the start of May.
