Tasmania’s second highest peak
The Ben Lomond Ski field Area is reached via the C401 from Launceston. Allow about 1 hour 20 minutes travel time from Launceston or allow 3.5 hours from Hobart via the Midlands Heritage Highway.
The alpine village is 18 kilometres from the main road turnoff; the upper section of the road is subject to ice and snow. To that end vehicles are required to carry chains and fit them if directed. Chains are not available on the mountain but can be rented in Launceston at Autobarn or Skigia in Hobart.
If travelling to the mountain by car there are car parking facilities available. Whether you have a 2 or 4 wheel drive you MUST carry chains during the season.
Ben Lomond Snow Sports have two shuttle buses that are located on the mountain 24/7. They collect from the bottom car park at the Parks and Wildlife Service registration booth and can deliver you to the car park at the base of the boardwalk. If you are catching the shuttle you do not need to hire, fit or carry chains. Fuel is also not available on the mountain.
