Photo: Sniper in the Southern Snow - NZ Army

A couple of cold snaps in recent weeks have brought snow to inland areas, like the Tekapo Military Training area in New Zealand's South Island.

This great photo sent in to @WeatherWatchNZ on Twitter Monday afternoon is from the NZ Army.

"Fresh as [snow emoji] Temperatures recently dropped around New Zealand causing snowfall around our Tekapo Military Training Area where our snipers from 2/1 RNZIR have been conducting advanced training". wrote the NZ Army in their tweet.

Thanks for sharing this unique photo - and thanks for helping always protect New Zealand.
