Road Condition

Fitting chains to 2WD - all other vehicles must

Please be advised that 2WD vehicles may have to fit chains due to icy conditions this morning, there are narrow spots on Jacobs ladder where the grader has cleared the snow. We cannot stress more to follow signage and 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


Hire all your gear and grab your food and hot drinks from Ben Lomond Snow Sports who are open 7 days from 9am to 4:30pm have all your hire needs covered right at the doorstep to the snow. This means no lugging your gear up from the car park, no mess, no stress and most importantly no worries. 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. For more information about Ben Lomond Snow Sports hire options visit the hire page on our website Transport (Ben Lomond Snow Sports) operate a friendly convenient transport service with two troop carriers on the mountain. These 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.

Between 300 & 700 per day are reading this, plus this page is directly linked from the committee site and still ranks #1 for Google Searches So, it's worth someone updating regularly with commentary.

if anybody reads these as most people get their snow info from facey , Ben Lomond has a good cover of snow . we have had internet problems getting the info out last couple of days but NW snow fell above the ladder all day on Thursday .. the slopes are looking awesome for 1st July . more snow - (even a south easterly ) will blow in on monday dropping i think maybe another 20+ cm on us so things are looking great for a very good 2016 ski season on Ben Lomond

looking good, any idea how much snow has fallen? looks like at least 30cm, report update would be good
