Snow has fallen on Bluff Knoll as stormy conditions closed railway crossings and dumped hail on the Great Southern region.

A layer of white powder fell on the peak in the early hours of Thursday morning, attracting snow hunters to the rare sight.

Residents in the region made the most of the hail, using it to build snowmen and keep their drinks cold.
