    Alpine Enterprises have again regrettably placed all lifts on hold due to the softening surface.
    Good skiing still to be had over the back, small natural features can be found for playing on
    Please do not walk on the lift lines (and if you see others ask them not to) as it damages the snow base under the lift

    Bull Dozers Pick: Big Ben over the back should still give some good lines

    It seems to be implied but not stated, that Ben Lomond is now closed for the year.

    Hi Squidly,

    Sorry Yes as far as I'm aware the Lifts are closed for the year and today is the last day which Ben Lomond Snow Sports will be open also.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    AE have still placed all lifts on hold/standby and as far as I am aware they will remain so until conditions improve or the end of the School holidays when AE traditionally pull the pin on the season.
    As far as Snowsports are concerned they are a separate business and will advise their customers accordingly. If circumstances change and either business advises otherwise I will relay it here.
