Police have just confirmed the search has now resumed for a Canadian man missing in the Snowy Mountains for over a week.
The search was called off yesterday afternoon, as authorities waited for a break in weather conditions.
They're holding grave concerns for the 25-year-old Bond University student, reportedly missing since last Monday.
