About Hotham

From powder hound ski slopes to breathtaking views of Victoria’s North East and Gippsland regions, Australia’s highest alpine village will enchant you from the moment you begin your journey along the Great Alpine Road.

Mount Hotham village sits on a ridgeline, which means a 360-degree view of the wondering mountain ranges that ripple away from the central hub. The village offers you a laid back and hearty pub meal, a relaxing Japanese Onsen Spa retreat to a chilled out Chill Bar (yes, it says it in its name). At Mount Hotham, we put all our cards on the table, there is no pretending here. It’s just you and the mountain.

With 80% of guests returning to our beloved mountain we must be doing something right, right? Whether it’s the down-to-earth people or the cosy lodges that seem to steal your heart with their authenticity and rustic ambiance, we’ve got you covered.

And whilst our terrain brings the best skiers from all over the world to our mountain (and its clear why) with double black diamond runs and challenging back country trails, it’s really the people who come with their footy guernseys and keen attitude that make this mountain so addictive.

For those who aren’t keen boarders or skiers, we haven’t forgotten about you. If you just like to hear the soft crunch of snow under your shoes and fill your nostrils with crisp air, then our snow play area offers just that. Whether that’s tobogganing for the kiddies, sled dog rides, a snow laser skirmish (which will bring out your competitive side) come down to Wire Plain and enjoy the snow!

If you come here expecting a European snow experience, think again. There’s a reason why Mount Hotham is known as Australia’s True Alpine Spirit, its because we are an authentic Australian mountain with a nose for bulldust!

Mount Hotham Alpine Resort offers premier accommodation, a complete snowsports school and programs, equipment hire, a range of activities, over 20+ bars and restaurants and everything you need to ensure you have a complete holiday above the snowline.
