Overnight the crust on the snowcam has grown indicating that there has been some more snowfall on the ski slopes so it has snowed. Ben Lomond Snow Sports have reported that conditions are very windy outside, not unbearable but extremely cold. We will hopefully have a slope and lift conditions update soon.
ROAD CONDITIONS –Ben Lomond road has snow on the road from the camp ground. This morning
Parks and Wildlife have advised 2WD vehicles will have to fit chains, Jacobs ladder has between 2-5 cm of soft fresh snow but not enough to call the grader to clear the road. If you are driving a car you not only need to have chains, you need to know how to fit them and how to drive your car whist they are on. For more information on chains visit the snowsafe website
