Good morning snow goers. This morning Alpine Enterprises have confirmed there will be two lifts operating today on their morning snow report. Thanks also to Alpine Enterprises for today’s feature image looking towards Bass Lift.
Parks and wildlife have confirmed that 2wd vehicles will be required to fit chains this morning as the road is icy so obey the signage and follow directions of your Parks team.

Concept plans for the Public Shelter improvements at Ben Lomond (removal of shared breezeway and new entrance off the western deck) have been released for information. The works are being undertaken to improve the accessibility of the Public Shelter as the existing entrances are not clear, reduce ongoing maintenance costs and provide physical separation from the Public Shelter and Ben Lomond Alpine Hotel.
Works have now been approved & funded and detailed plans are currently being drawn up by the PWS engineer. Works are expected to commence within a month and stakeholders / visitors are advised that during construction the Public Shelter will remain open.
Ben Lomond Users please note that Road works are continuing on Ben Lomond Road and that whilst the road will remain open there may be some short delays. As such please be patient with contractors undertaking the works and allow some additional time for travel through this section of road improvement on the way to our great alpine destination.
