10 great reasons to visit Hotham in spring

10 great reasons to visit Hotham in spring

Spring skiing and snowboarding is where Australian ski resorts come into their own.  There's lots of fun to be had with friends and family and here's just 10 great reasons to visit Hotham in spring!

  1. The Heli Link gives you access to ski or snowboard two mountains in one day and your Hotham lift pass is also valid at Falls Creek. Fly over in the morning and fly back in the afternoon and on the way you’ll have a bird's eye view of some of Victoria’s most spectacular snow capped mountains. Bookings are essential as seats fill up fast on bluebird days.

  2. Fun spring conditions. Longer days, more playful and forgiving ‘Hero snow’, uncrowded slopes, sunshine and goggle tans make spring a great time to ski and snowboard.

  3. Discounted private lessons in the afternoon. Never stop improving. A private lesson is like having a personal trainer, choose your instructor and what you want to focus on. Split the lesson between friends with 10% discount on all private lessons from 12 noon all spring.

  4. Après in the sun. There’s nothing better than Spring skiing or snowboarding on a sunny day at Hotham and then spending the afternoon enjoying après with friends on one of Hotham’s deck bars at The Bird, Zirky’s, Swindlers or The Genny watching the sun set over the valley. Bliss!

  5. Entertainment and DJ’s. Lots of entertainment this Spring at Hotham with DJ’s and live performances at different venues around the mountain.
    -DJs Kaspar & Dion Jackson at The General Saturday 10 September
    -Electro/dance Darude and DJ at The General Monday 12 September
    -Pierce Brothers at The General Friday 16 September
    -Blues musician Chris Wilson at Rundell's Saturday 17 September
    -Glen Ford at The General Friday 23 September
    -Closing weekend retro party, live acts at various venues 24-25 September

  6. Lifts open at 8:30am.  It’s the perfect time to get out on an early Spring morning and hit the freshly groomed corduroy before everyone else is out on the mountain.

  7. Make it a long weekend and ski or ride an extra day for free with our All Week Magic deal where you get 3 days skiing and snowboarding for the price of a 2 day lift pass any day of the week in Spring. 

  8. Accommodation discounts. Stay at some of the best properties on the mountain with 50% off peak season accommodation rates through Hotham Holidays all Spring. See rates

  9. Meet the filmmakers and see Lydia Lassila's new film The Will to Fly on Saturday 10 September, upstairs at the Big D Kids Ski & Ride School. The Will To Fly tells the inspirational story of freestyle aerial skier Lydia Lassila’s rise to Olympic success and becoming the first woman to perform a quadruple twisting, triple somersault on skis.

  10. Closing Weekend. Hotham is going back in time and Hot Dogging into 1986 for closing weekend 24-25 September. Anyone who dresses up in retro ski/snowboard gear will be able to purchase a lift pass at 1986 prices – just $35 for adults and children. There'll be DJ’s, live entertainment, prizes for best dressed plus discounted resort entry, accommodation and drinks!

So join Hotham this spring and enjoy everything great about the mountains!
