Actually I should remember this one because ゲッター3 has an attack called 大雪山おろし(だいせつざんおろし) -- who said anime never teaches you anything ;)

Yeah, I guess that's one of those "compound" kanji that AJB was talking about -- if I saw 大雪山 I would definitely know how to read it but just trying to come up with the on-yomi of 雪 alone wouldn't have worked.

I often end up trying to figure out how something is read by remembering another compound that uses the same kanji. Only problem is that I sometimes get them mixed up and use the 1st kanji's reading for the 2nd or vice-versa.
