ROAD CONDITIONS – The road to the mountain is mostly open and clear. ALL vehicles proceeding past the park registration area must carry chains. Take care parking your cars in the plateau car park as this remains to have some snowy areas. Drive to the conditions and keep a sensible distance between cars. Please follow the directions of the Parks Rangers. 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 Gear Hire and Cafe (Ben Lomond Snow Sports) are open 7 days 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.

Heard a rumour front slopes are open tomorrow... no promises though. Bass and Summit are ready to go though. Snow was wet in the morning but really nice in the arvo. Skiied over to Giblin last thing today, knee deep in spots, but the wind was starting to develop a crust in places. Still windy, has stopped snowing.

There is some ice and snow on the mountain , snow play at this stage . it has been very cold this weekend and the snow sports crew have cranked up all three snow guns overnight . More snow is expected this afternoon and overnight . This coming week is also looking positive for snow with temps staying quite cold and fronts coming through at a regular rate during the week fingers crossed more some good snow falls in the next week
