Just when Tasmanians thought winter was over, snow has again blanketed parts of the state's south.
The mercury dropped to minus five degrees on Hobart's Mount Wellington which was capped with snow down to 200 metres.
Tourists and locals were keen to head to the top, but council road closures forced drivers to wait while the main road was cleared.
Most were saying it was worth the wait.
"Fun, awesome and spectacular. We were watching the temperature gauge in the car and it got to minus three so we were pretty happy about that," one said.
Hobart City Council workers spent the morning clearing snow from the road and car parks.
The temperature on the mountain at midday was minus 2 degrees.
Police say no other roads were closed.
