Some amazing photos of the Queenstown area blanketed in snow looking like a winter wonderland have been captured after it received a dumping earlier today.
Pictures taken by Otago Daily Times reporters and provided by Coronet Peak and The Remarkables skifields show off the resort town after it got a chilly autumn blast today.
A front brought snow to ground level in some areas.
If you have any pictures of the snow today send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with when, where and who took it to get them featured in our slideshow.
