Also managed to throw a little BBQ together with Barrie for the ski patrol and thanks to everyone who supported it, we raised over $300. Hopefully snow and weather dependant we can have some more throughout the rest of the season.

Could the people in charge of the Ben Lomond snow reports please update daily? We need to know if there is skiiable cover or not and if lifts are open if you want visitors. I'm hoping that the downpour outside right now is coming down as cold, white, fluffy goodness on the peak.

If you have access to facebook, then like Ben Lomond Snow Sports, if there is anything worth knowing flea always posts it there. Also Ben Lomond Creek Inn's page (the pub) frequently put up snaps when there is some white worth seeing.

Thanks for the feedback djdomain. Unfortunately due to the deteriorating conditions the ski camera says it all. I've updated the report with some updated information and as the snow begins to fall, from tonight hopefully we can provide more information on whats happening throughout the day. Its currently +2.8 on the mountain and everything is very wet so a large fall will be needed to get things going again.

Keep posted.

Best Snow all season.
Fresh Tracks to be had mountain wide
Eryl and crew are going to try and get some tows going today.
Should be good for tomorrow
But today is well worth the effort to go for a trek
Hippie sticking would be sensational.

Not sure if anything turned before they broke. They had issues with both Bass and village diesels. Josh and Steve are both out there tonight swapping the diesel on village, so Eryl tells me that he intends to run Village, Summit and either Fannies or Bills tomorrow.
The wind should abate tomorrow. Saturday is shaping up to be a purler.

Any chance that Ben Lomond will be open on Saturday? Or is it finished for the season?
By the looks, there's more snow on the way!

Apparently done for the season, Mawson is a better chance and will likely get more snow from this system on top of what already looks adequate, hopefully it holds up for the weekend.

Someone has already been for a slide on a board up at Mawson, cover looks pretty decent, even over on Rodways there is snow, though suspect not top to bottom.

unfortunately nothing on line permanently at the moment.

NTAC cams won't hotlink and are only working on weekends ATM, Snowsports only run when open and the generator is running, and Rovers cam is just waiting to be recommissioned.

Hopefully it won't be tooooooo much longer
