To reach the summit, visitors must first climb Jacobs Ladder; a steep and narrow section of road. Wheel chains must be carried between June and September - they are not available on the mountain, but can be rented or purchased from outlets in major centres.
During the ski season, a shuttle service from the Ben Lomond lower carpark is operated by Ben Lomond Snow Sports, a private operator. They can be contacted on 03 6390 6185.
Due to a fire that destroyed the main public shelter at Ben Lomond in 2018, temporary facilities have been installed for the 2019 ski season. These are located within the main village area and will contain toilets, hand basins and a heated shelter area.
