New South Wales and ACT Policing will be cracking down on dangerous driving this snow season.
The NSW school holidays begin next week and police say their new snow safety campaign will target drink driving, speeding and driver fatigue.
It comes as police expect a high number of visitors to make the trip this weekend.
State Emergency Services (SES) spokesperson Greg Newton says last year's snow season saw a number of fatalities.
"Over the course of the year on the Hume, and down on the Snowy Mountains and the Monaro Highways, our volunteers got called out a number of times to respond to motor vehicle accidents," he said.
"It's not something that they look forward to going out to and drivers should take care on the road."
NSW Policing Superintendent Murray Johnstone says people should slow down in the icy conditions.
"We want people to come to the Alpine region at this time of year, have a great time, enjoy their holiday, do it safely and return back home safely," he said.
"We have an extra four police and two highway patrol vehicles which will working in the Jindabyne area over the next 10 weeks and that is a component of Operation Snow Safe."
Police are reminding drivers to obey speed limits, take regular breaks and be patient and alert when driving in heavy traffic conditions.
Increases in highway patrols have already begun and will continue until October.
