BEN LOMOND

National Park

Ben Lomond National Park is better known to locals as one of Tasmania's two ski fields - the other being at Mt Field near Hobart.  The base of Ben Lomond is just a little over thirty minute easy drive from Launceston on an excellent sealed road.  The road to the ski fields is a typical mountain road.  A gravel road winds its way through dry eucalypt forest for about 12 kilometres until 'Jacobs Ladder' is reached.  From here the road zig zag's up the face of the mountain for a kilometre or two where the plateau is reached.  The road then crosses the plateau for a few kilometres to the Ski Village.  Chains are usually required during the ski season which commences at the end of July depending on snow falls.

 

There is a shuttle bus operation from the snow line to the village during the ski season.  Times and days of operation vary depending on snow levels.  There is ski rental available as well as several ski tows, a kiosk and a tavern in the village.  There are several accommodation options.  A skiers delight particularly mid week when the slopes are relatively uncluttered.

 

There is a camping ground about 2 kilometres before Carr Villa near the base of the mountain.  It has basic facilities.  There is a scout hut at Carr Villa where an alpine walk commences to the ski village.  Usually a summer wildflower walk.  We visited the area on August 15th after good snowfalls earlier in the week.
