Arco-Ski Lodge

Welcome to Arco Ski Lodge, Mount Hotham’s latest food and beverage addition. Located on level 1 of the iconic Jack Frost building, just across the walkway from the Davenport Village Lodges (just head for the big fairy lights in the trees and you’ve found us!).

We are a traditional, Bavarian Bier Hall serving big, hearty German meals of superb quality plus a large range of traditional Bavarian beverages, like our award-winning Arcobräu beers – available in in the giant 1-litre Stein as well as the 300ml and 500ml glass.

We also offer an outstanding range of spirits and of course, an abundance of Schnapps as well as traditional Isaperle soft drinks for the kids.

At the Arco Ski Lodge, there is live entertainment from a wide variety of performers and popular DJs. Put this against a spectacular backdrop of Victoria’s highest, most picturesque alpine resort, Mount Hotham, and you’ve got the perfect place to wind down after a day of skiing and boarding.

Relax in our lounge area, throw some darts and get excited about our daily Après-Ski Party with our beautifully warming Gluhwein, the best schnapps selection on the mountain with the range coming from around Austria, Bavaria and Germany, and enjoy our delicious daily specials.

Enjoy our mouth-watering menu with traditional dishes ranging from soups and giant Brezels to our famous pork knuckle, freshly made schnitzels and huge sharing platters.

Arco Ski Lodge exclusively serves beer from the famous Arcobräu Brewery, the winner of five Gold Medals at the 2013 European Beer awards.

Our staff are dressed in traditional Bavarian outfits. They will spoil you and make sure you definitely don’t go home hungry.

Once the clock hits 10.00pm on Friday and Saturday nights, we dim the lights and treat you to the best nightclub that the area has to offer, featuring renowned DJs from home and abroad.

Arco Ski Lodge caters for all tastes with gluten free options and kids’ menu.
