Do you get a lot of snow in Tasmania and where can I go skiing?

The central highlands and the more mountainous areas often get snowfalls in the winter months. However, snow rarely settles at sea level.
Mount Wellington, in Hobart, has sporadic snow in the colder months (although it’s even been known to have snow in November), and you can drive up the mountain to meet it. Find out current conditions on Mount Wellington.

Ben Lomond in the northeast (one hour’s drive south of Launceston) is the perfect place for downhill and cross-country skiers. Mount Mawson at Mount Field National Park in the south (90 minutes’ drive from Hobart) is also a great spot after heavy snowfall. During the season, ski tows operate at both locations. Find about current snow conditions at Ben Lomond or Mount Field.
