Although it snows in Tasmania every winter, the areas suitable for skiing are relatively few. Ben Lomond is the island’s principal downhill ski resort, with eight lifts, while Lake Dobson in Mount Field National Park has more limited alpine skiing facilities. These two locations are the best places on the island for ski touring. Ben Lomond is also a venue for ice-climbing, an exciting form of mountaineering on frozen waterfalls that is as yet in its infancy in Tasmania. Hiking to these vertical ice formations through snow-covered scrub can often be almost as challenging as the climbing itself.
