How Were the Snowy Mountains Formed?

Answer

Snowy Mountains were formed after highest peaks of the main range near Mount Kosciuszko experienced a climate which favored the formation of glaciers. For example Lake Cootapatamba which is the highest lake on the Australian mainland, was formed by an ice spilling from Mount Kosciuszko's southern flank.
