Many groups pick up snow clothing from Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre – 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. 

Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre has been renovated to offer more space for guests this season. Also new for 2015 – a dedicated ski tuning workshop including a Montana Snow Star Crystal Glide tuning machine & a Wax Future to keep your gear in tiptop shape. We have clean public bathroom facilities and 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. Stay warm and dry in your vehicle while we do the hard work!
