TODAY might be the perfect opportunity to have some fun in the snow.

While the Bureau of Meteorology had not predicted further snowfalls overnight, duty forecaster Anna Forrest said that existing snow on Ben Lomond and in the Central Highlands was expected to refreeze.

Ava Smith, 6, and Sophie Ikin, 5, celebrated their last day of school holidays with a snowball fight yesterday.

Sophie's mum Emma Ikin said it had been many years since she had seen so much snow fall.

"We came up last night and there was no snow, and then we got up this morning at six o'clock and there was about two-and-a-half foot of snow. It was amazing," she said.

"We think there will be an influx of people tomorrow with the snow."

The Ikins are holidaying at their family shack at Arthurs Lake, and plan to spend four nights away before returning to Hobart.

"If the snow dries up we will go for some walks, and just enjoy the surroundings," Ms Ikin said.

After a full day in the snow yesterday, the family planned to spend the evening defrosting.

"We will go back to the shack and make the most of the nice warm cosy fire, and play some board games."
