season pass allowance


For season pass holders, we know the snow can be hit and miss at Ben Lomond, that's why our season passes will come with a minimum usage allowance. The value of a seasons pass is equivalent of 5 normal day passes +

For example, should you only use your season pass for 2 days for season 2021, you can use the remaining 3 passes for 2022.  You will then need to purchase another season pass after that if you wish to continue for unlimited access for 2022.

For 2021, if you use up all your minimum usage, you can continue to use your season pass for the rest of the 2021 season for unlimited lift use.

Each season pass holder will need to provide ID upon ticket collection or have their photo on our online ticketing system to confirm, either at the ticket office when collecting their pass for the day or online, for which the credit system will keep track of your usage.

0 Ski Days / 5 days credit on following year

1 Ski Day  / 4 days  credit on following year

2 Ski Days / 3 days   credit on following year

3 Ski Days / 2 days   credit on following year

4 Ski Days / 1 days  credit on following year

A ski day(s) is classed as use of our lifts and being obtained at the ticket office anytime during the season.

No Refunds - Purchasing a season pass and agreeing to the lift allowance secures your right to have credits applied for the following year.  Should you become medically unfit, become pregnant or discuss your situation with us, we may consider offering either a credit or partial refund at our discretion.

Please note that the minimum usage allowance is only valid for the 2021 season pass purchase only and may not be offered for the following season(s).

snow report


Ben Lomond Official Snow Report, Updated:  Friday 3/9/21

Hi everyone,

We would like to thank each and every one of you who came to use Ben Lomond Ski Lifts for our first year of operations.

We will unfortunately be calling the official end of season from today due to lack of snow. There is very little snow in the forward forecast, and it is getting warmer by the day.

Albeit we had a short 2021 winter season, we will be working hard in the summer months to extend future seasons. There will be some exciting changes to come and we are pushing hard to make these happen as quickly as possible.

We look forward to seeing you all next year for a bigger and better 2022 season.
Kind regards
Ben Lomond Alpine Resort PTY LTD

Getting here


Ben Lomond is located 50km south east of Launceston in Tasmania. Take the C401 (Blessington Road), turning off approximately 3.5km before Upper Blessington, following the signs to Ben Lomond Road. Please note that this is an unsealed road and care must be taken when making the ascent up the mountain.

The final 8km of the journey to Ben Lomond is 'Jacob's Ladder' a steep, winding section of road which has recently been extensively upgraded to cater for growing visitor numbers. During the winter months, from June to September the road is subject to icy conditions - most importantly, chains must be carried during this time and can be hired or purchased from a variety of outlets.

Entry into Ben Lomond National Park is subject to a National Parks Entry Fee which can be paid on the spot, or pre-purchased, click here for more information.

Please note visitors use the road at their own risk,  Ben Lomond Alpine Resort PTY LTD is not responsible for visitors who ignore the requirements to fit or carry snow chains. Unfortunately due to liability and occupational health and safety issues, Ben Lomond Alpine Resort will not assist in vehicle recovery activities, except under an emergency situation at the vehicle operators expense.

F.A.Q


ALL vehicles, 4WD and 2WD, need to carry chains past the official park entrance. Parks and Wildlife Service and or Police check and turn people back if they do not have chains.

introduction


INTRODUCTION: TO A FUN SAFE TRIP TO THE SNOWFIELDS

The alpine environment is a beautiful destination for winter or summer holidays and a venue for many challenging and exciting activities including skiing and bush walking. The Alps, however, can be hazardous if visitors are careless and irresponsible.Even on the shortest visit to the snow it is important to be prepared for and aware of the nature of the alpine environment. When planning your trip to the snowfields, select a resort or area which caters for you and your group’s needs as facilities, experiences and opportunities vary widely between resorts and various parts of the Alpine National Parks and high country. Generally, the better the planning the better the outcome, more fun and less hassles.


FIRST-TIMER ESSENTIALS

The following information is essential and relevant to all visitors to alpine areas, regardless of the length of the visit or the type of alpine activity.Even on the shortest visit to the snow it is important to be prepared for and aware of the nature of the alpine environment. When planning your trip to the snowfields, select a resort or area which caters for you and your group’s needs as facilities, experiences and opportunities vary widely between resorts and various parts of the Alpine National Parks and high country. When planning it is important to prepare your vehicle for a trip to the snow, organise your clothing and equipment. Snow sport is more enjoyable if you improve your fitness and organise lessons. Once there, take special care with children. Arrange to leave details of your trip with a responsible contact, for example a parent or teacher.Generally, the better the planning the better the outcome, more fun and less hassles.

Alcohol and drugs don’t cut it in the snow. Alcohol and drugs impair judgement, slow response time and reduce your ability to respond in an emergency.

ALPINE RESPONSIBILITY CODE


ALPINE RESPONSIBILITY CODE

There are inherent risks in all snow recreational activities. Common sense, staying in control and personal awareness can reduce these risks. Risks include rapid changes in weather, visibility and surface conditions, as well as natural and artificial hazards such as rocks, trees, stumps, vehicles, lift towers, snow fences and snowmaking equipment. Observe the code and ski and ride with courtesy to others.

  1. Stay in control and avoid other people and hazards.
  2. Use appropriate protective equipment, especially helmets, to minimise the risk of injury.
  3. You must have the ability to use each lift safely. If in doubt ask the lift attendant.
  4. Obey all signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails and areas.
  5. It is your responsibility to avoid and give way to people below and beside you.
  6. Do not stop where you are not visible from above or where you obstruct a trail.
  7. Before starting downhill, or merging into a trail, look uphill and give way to others.
  8. Use care to prevent runaway snowboards.
  9. If you are involved in or see an accident, alert and identify yourself to Resort Staff.
  10. Be aware that it is dangerous to ski, board or ride lifts if your ability is impaired by drugs or alcohol.

OBSERVE THE CODE

Regardless of how you enjoy your snow sport, there are inherent risks in all snow recreational activities. While in a alpine environment always show courtesy to others and be aware that common sense, protective equipment and personal awareness can reduce the risks. These risks include rapid changes in the weather, visibility and surface conditions, as well as natural and artificial hazards such as rocks, trees, stumps, vehicles, lift towers, snow fences and snowmaking equipment.Snow sports are lots of fun, but if you do not pay attention to the Code, you could end up hurting yourself or those around you. Observe the Code and share with others the responsibility for a great experience.

Respect gets respect. From the lift line, to the slopes, through the park and the resort.
