Current weather conditions up here are excellent, blue sky’s and a light wind blowing over the ski fields. Snow cover remains very good on the back and front slopes but remains patchy at the bottom of the runs. The cover is hard packed with some wind scared areas over the back. This will soften due to the blue sky’s which should make good skiing conditions. #benlomond#winter #snow #itsstillhere #comeupforsomefun
Lift operations have ceased for 2016 so the slopes are open for all snowplay and freestyle riding across the mountain until the snow runs out.
Ben Lomond Snow Sports are remaining open from 9am to 4:30pm have all your hire needs covered right at the doorstep to the snow. They have everything from clothing through to toboggans, skis, snowboards, boots, poles, snow shoes and lessons with qualified instructors! Pop in for a bite to eat for some great hot food and drink options from their café just off the snow or try one of their to die for hot chocolates and get it out of the cold.
