A $1.8 MILLION spend has been recommended to lift winter activities at Ben Lomond.
A feasibility study into investment in the mountain's ski field was prepared by TRC Tourism, commissioned by local and state government, tourism and representative groups.
The study found $1 million should be spent on increasing water supply to enable snowmaking, and electricity and gas reticulation.
It also recommended $200,000 be spent on equipment to double snowmaking capacity, and $600,000 be spent on slope grooming, shuttle services, enhancing the beginner ski area, toilets, a walking track for summer and signage.
The Northern Midlands and Launceston City councils joined with the Department of State Growth, Parks and Wildlife Services, Regional Development Australia, the Ben Lomond Committee and Northern Tasmania Development to commission the report.
Northern Midlands Council economic and community development manager Lorraine Green said the ski field would provide a major tourism and recreational product of state significance, with potential to trigger complementary tourism investment.
"The Ben Lomond ski season is often short, hampered by unreliable snow cover," Ms Green said. "Despite attempts by ski area operators to secure grant funding to extend snowmaking in the skifield, little investment has occurred in recent years.
"The lack of investment is symptomatic of the level of uncertainty associated with return on investment, given the highly intermittent nature of snowfall and whether the skifield has the potential to become a key driver for tourism growth in the traditionally low tourism season."
The study will be discussed at the Northern Midlands Council's general meeting on Monday.
