 Group Holidays with Hoys

Hoys have been helping organise group holidays to Mt Hotham for over 70 years. We can help with all your transport, accommodation, lift tickets, resort entry & hiring needs. Hoys have been transporting school & social groups from all States and can organise a variety of options to suit your needs.

Hoys operate 4 Ski Centres all with fantastic central locations –

  • Hoys Dinner Plain Ski Shop, right on the main roundabout at Dinner Plain;
  • Hoys Mt Hotham Ski Shop (“The Shed”) next to the Resort Management Board Office in the day car park at Mt Hotham village centre;
  • Hoys @ Jack Frost on Davenport drive in the Lodges precinct ;
  • Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre (The A-Frame) - the last ski centre before heading up the mountain.

Hosting the only security carparking in Harrietville, Hoys is the natural choice for your transport connection. The Mt Hotham Snowball Express departs from Hoys daily, and is the preferred location for taxi departures. Call Hoys to make your transport bookings – 1800 GO SNOW Email –

Many groups pick up clothing hire from Hoys Harrietville – so you can arrive at Mt Hotham appropriately dressed for winter conditions. Often skiers who hire clothing elsewhere are disappointed to find their rental clothing is identical to many others on the slopes. Hoys rental clothing offers the individual look, great brands with strict priority to highest waterproof abilities. 

We also have a café (Alpine Diner), toilets and full up to date ski/board hire and new in 2013 – a Montana Snow Star Crystal Glide tuning machine in our ski workshop. You can also use our Resort Easy Access kiosk to organise your entry to the resort.

If self driving- Hoys offer the best service EVER! When you hire your chains from Hoys in Harrietville, our mobile chain fitting service operating on the Mt Hotham road, will fit them for FREE as you travel up the mountain. You can also pre purchase your Resort entry pass from our Harrietville shop.
