Where can I go skiing?
Following good winter snowfalls, downhill and cross-country skiers head for Ben Lomond, an hour's drive south-east of Launceston, (public accommodation is available) or Mt Mawson in the Mt Field National Park, two hours drive from Hobart. (day facilities only). During the season, ski-tows operate at both locations. When conditions are right, good ski-touring is also available in the Cradle Mountain area.
