Hotham - Feel on top of the world!

The ultimate in the Ski in - Ski out alpine environment! Not to mention the 360º views!

Mt Hotham Resort LogoAlong with Hotham's exquisite range of terrain, the village has a massive array of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and accommodation options to suit a huge range of budgets. As a first class resort, groups both small and large can be catered to, and the range of facilities at Hotham are second to none.

Staying at Mount Hotham is a unique alpine experience due to the location of the village toward the summit of the mountain. Most of the accommodation boasts spectacular views from the sweeping Dargo High Plains to the south-west and Mount Feathertop to the north-east. Ski in/ski out accommodation is available in one of the Hotham Heights houses whilst ski-out accommodation is available in the Davenport Village which also provides excellent access to the Big D and beginner ski areas. The village also boasts a childcare centre, supermarkets, shopping options and all the other amenities you would expect of a modern ski resort.


Mt Hotham Snow Guarantee

If, due to lack of snow, there are less than 3 lifts (inclusive of at least 1 lift that services an intermediate trail) operating at Hotham 2 days prior to the check-in date of your snow holiday, you may choose to receive a credit or full refund on all pre-paid accommodation and lift company products. If you decide to wait less than 2 days before your check-in date to see if further lifts open, the credit or refund will be granted based on the number of lifts operational due to lack of snow on the day you request a refund. You may not cancel your holiday on the check-in date. This snow guarantee only applies if a lift cannot be opened due to a lack of snow on the major trail it services. The guarantee does not apply if lifts are on windhold – i.e. not able to be opened due to high winds, low visibility or a combination of these weather elements or undergoing temporary maintenance.
