Hotham Alpine Resort is the place for a true winter holiday which means you get to spend time together sharing a common passion.... snow!
Looking After the Kids
At Hotham you will find a well-staffed, professional and exciting Kids Snowzone, where children from 3 to 14 can learn how to ski or board (7yrs+ only). There is a Class 1 child minding facility called Hotham Daycare, conveniently located on level two of the Kids Snowzone building. There are also walk-on, beginner slopes that are extremely gentle for even the tiniest of tots who have never been skiing before.
Hotham has an extensive range of specially tailored lessons and programs that get children of all ages out on the slopes in no time. Children from as young as 3 years old can participate in a group beginner lesson and share excitement on the snow. If your children are younger than 3, then a private lesson can be arranged to get them out on the snow.
The MILO Mighty Mites specialises in programs for 3 – 5 year olds and offers half day (AM) or full day lessons in skiing.
The MILO Kids Klub is for 6 – 14 year olds and offers half (AM) and full day sessions in both skiing and snowboarding.
Alpine Babysitting is a service where the child care comes to you, providing in-house care for families wanting to explore the area or enjoy some time without the children.
