Families faced frosty temperatures and icy winds at Ben Lomond over the weekend, with snow season well and truly upon Tasmania.
Negative two-degree temperatures were not enough to deter those who travelled near and far from enjoying the refreshing and magical mountain.
Ben Lomond Snow Sport's Felicity Foot said the 2019 snow season so far had been fantastic.
"Snow season's going really good," she said.
"A lot of mainlanders have been visiting and now a lot of locals too, because it's the end of mainland holidays so now locals can share the wonder that we've got on Ben Lomond."

Ms Foot added that while Sunday had started off slow due to the fog, people began to flock to the popular winter destination during the day.
"It's been very busy, very slow to start off with because people don't see when it's all cloudy at home," she said.
"You look up and you think 'oh no,' and then you read the Ben Lomond Facebook page and think 'actually, I might come up,'."
Jacqui and Matt Jarvis, of Western Australia were visiting Tasmania for the weekend to see Hawthorn play Fremantle at UTAS Stadium on Saturday.
While Mr Jarvis admitted he was disappointed by the footy, which saw the ice-cold Dockers lose to the red-hot Hawks, he enjoyed visiting Ben Lomond.
"It [Ben Lomond] has been lovely, we're not used to places this cold," Mrs Jarvis said.
Jonty Swallow and Hayley Bumford, of Newstead, visit Ben Lomond every year.
"We're always picking the bad weather when we come, but it's no problem at all," Mr Swallow said.

Ms Foot said while the weekend was frosty, she hoped it was a sign that softer snow will occur in the coming weeks.
"Hopefully it [the weather] will be good, it depends on the snow this week and it's getting cold enough to make snow," she said.
"When it gets down to about minus six and low humidity, we turn on the snow guns at great expense and make snow.
"The snow that the snow guns make is a different texture so it lasts longer so hopefully it might get through to mid-September."
