Ben Lomond Ski Area Snowboarding

The MOST popular snowboarding destination in Australia.

About 100 km east of Cradle Mountain Park, the Ben Lomond Ski Area is known for Tasmanias best snowboarding. When snowboarding and freeriding internationally, it is important to get a travel insurance policy that covers emergency rescue, medical expense and evacuation. There are many destinations that will not initiate rescue or medical treatment without prior payment or proof of insurance. In many cases, the rescue fees, medical fees or evacuation to a reputable hospital can total tens of thousands of dollars. Plans such as GEOS SAR100 or IMG Patriot Travel Medical Insurance are well worth the per-trip cost of $130 to $200 USD.

Overall, Ben Lomond Ski Area is the 1st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 3 snowboarding resorts in Australia.
