About Alpine Enterprises
Providing lift services to patrons on Ben Lomond for almost 50 years.
Alpine Enterprises was established in 1973 by Eryl Williams and Arvids Endelmanis (hence the name AE), with Brian Hill joining the partnership shortly after. He then took his enthusiasm, leaving AE, to the rental market and Ben Lomond Ski Rentals was created, now known as Snow Sports. It became a family partnership in 1987 and the current owner has a lifetime of memories on Ben Lomond and its people and 31 years experience with the company.
AE was the first commercial ski lift company on Ben Lomond. We are proud to be the original family business providing lifting on Tasmania's favourite family mountain. Our ski lifts have been installed, replaced and upgraded gradually over the 45 years of service to guests of Ben Lomond, and further development is always a consideration.
The passing of Eryl in late 2014 was a huge loss to the mountain. His trail blazing approach to the ski industry in Tasmania is well respected nationally, being officially/formally recognised by the Australia Ski Areas Association in 2013.
With a new generation at the 'helm', AE continues to offer the safest most reliable lifting available on the day (Mother Nature always plays a role), and looks forward to following the outstanding example set by previous partners.
