A report assessing the viability of snowmaking at Ben Lomond National Park has been released. 

The report is part of the Tasmanian Government initiative that also includes the preparation of a contemporary management plan for the national park, and the development of infrastructure that supports a year-round visitor experience at Ben Lomond.
 
The report by consultant firm GHD Pty Ltd investigates economic, environmental and socially sustainable options for the ski field. 

It recommended that the funding to enable power and water infrastructure to support expanded snowmaking at Ben Lomond does not proceed due to estimated costs, feasibility, and impacts from climate change.
