Good morning, it’s another blue sky morning and good conditions up on Ben Lomond today
Snow cover remains very good on the upper areas of the front and rear slopes but patchy on the lower areas. Snow condition remains soft from yesterday’s warm weather with little or no icy patches and only some wind scared patches on the rear ski slopes. #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 this week 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.
Road conditions: The route up is all clear from the bottom and along the plateau
Shuttle: Transport Shuttles run throughout the day collecting snow goers from the bottom car park at the Parks and Wildlife Service entry station and deliver you to the car park at the base of the boardwalk. If you are catching the bus you do not need to hire chains! Call 03 6390 6185 (TELSTRA SIGNAL) for a pickup or to arrange a booking. Prices are $15 per person or $50 for a family of 4 return.
