it was on sunday , its the ben , snow melts quick as weather is northerly now, the cams show nothing over the back which can be deceiving as it holds snow much better and can be 2-3 degrees colder. The front slopes go quick unless there is a huge cover on it - still nothing much in the way of snow weather on the radar now until next week - maybe late tue-wed . stay tuned

While I'm all for wishful thinking and would dearly love to see the Ben with a half a foot of snow and more on the way, I think calling the current cover "a good base" is a wee bit of a stretch. Chunks of ice are better than liquid water but that's about as far as it goes IMHO. http://www.ntac.org.au/web-cams/front-slopes-cam/

mountain has a good base - its frozen up there . if the atmosphere stays cold a chance of some snow tonight with this front timing is important - and maybe on and off a bit this week - we will in a be a bit of snow / thaw situation this week as usual - fairly typical june patten

Nothing open as yet. Worth a day drip just for the drive (you need to carry chains) and a beer/coffee at the pub.

So are there any lifts open etc? I'm going to find my self in Launceston in a fortnight for work, was keen to do a day trip on the weekend since it's so close. What are costs for lifts/ hire etc?

Could this be the best season in a long time? Will it be short lived? Will you party hard anyway and ski/board a bit if you can? Ben Lomond Bliss 2015 is the 'corner of the bar' place to hang out and chat about all things Ben Lomond :D See you on the slopes
