For the remainder of the 2018 snow season the Parks and Wildlife Service will be trialling a pre-recorded message to advise visitors of road conditions at Ben Lomond. The message will be updated as road conditions change. Call the below number to get the latest update.

  • PWS Ben Lomond Road Update – 0429 646 557

Chains are essential when you’re going to Ben Lomond. During the winter season its a legal requirement to carry and fit chains when the conditions require on Ben Lomond Road. This is due to the icy road conditions and also allows safe passage up the steep incline and hairpin corners of Jacobs Ladder and along Ben Lomond plateau at the top of the ladder.
