SKIING around Scottsdale

While Scottsdale is certainly not a skiing destination, due to its temperate climate, the wonderful ski fields of Tasmania's most popular winter destination, Ben Lomond, are only a couple of hours drive away!

There is an excellent shortcut to get to Ben Lomond from Scottsdale, over the Diddleum Plains, with spectcular views of Mt Barrow. There are some good places to stay on the mountain, with the main one being the Ben Lomond Creek Inn, with motel style accommodation. The village is compact, and the lifts are good. Works are planned and in progress to improve and lengthen the skiing season. Pictured to the right is the rather treacherous road up the side of Ben Lomond, Jacob's Ladder.

Fun in the snow!
