Snow causes chaos and glee

THE best snow conditions in years saw hundreds make the trek to Mt Mawson over the long weekend.
Both tows were operating after minor repairs and enthusiasts took advantage of the deep snow coverage
and dry condition making it perfect for skiing.

The wild weather created havoc for emergency workers, and power blackouts impacted thousands.
Southern Tasmania lost commercial television services on Saturday after the transmitter on Mt
Wellington was impacted by the weather.

The State Emergency Service was kept busy with eight people rescued from Mt Wellington on Saturday and another on Sunday. Tragically a woman was killed in the north when a tree fell and hit her.
