Two months out from the start of the season, New South Wales’s ski fields have received their first sprinkling of snow as a cold snap moves its way across the country’s south-east.

It got down to -3.2 in the Perisher Valley on Sunday morning with temps dipping to -5.1 in Thredbo.

It comes as Canberra also records its coldest April morning in more than 20 years.

Further snowfall is expected with temps across the Snowy Mountain forecast to remain low, returning to minus digits by the weekend.

The ski season is set to kick off from June 12, until then check out some of the stunning wintery sights from Thredbo below.
