Hoys Snow Travel Booking Service

Hoys Snow Travel Booking Service

Hoys began helping people travel to Mt Hotham over 70 years ago.

Most people travelling by car to Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain go through Harrietville. Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre is a convenient place to PARK’ n ‘ RIDE - stop, park and take transport up the mountain. There are advantages in letting someone else drive you, such as no snow driving/chain worries/ no antifreeze required and no on-mountain snow parking. Taking a coach can be a very cost-effective way to get on the mountain. The Snowball Express departs from Hoys Harrietville minimum twice daily for Mt Hotham & Dinner Plain. We can arrange your tickets to depart from Melbourne, Melbourne airport, Albury, Myrtleford, Bright, Harrietville or Mt Hotham.

Catching a taxi offers the convenience of you setting your travel times, getting an experienced driver and appropriate vehicle to make your mountain travel hassle free. Our drivers will get you as close to your accommodation as possible and we can advise you on how to organise the “Snow Tow” services for your luggage to your door. Passenger vehicles are available for carrying 4, 6, 11, 13, 21, 24 or a full coach. Hoys Booking Service can organise taxis to pick you up from Melbourne, Albury, Harrietville - wherever and whenever you need. Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre offers security car parking, clean bathroom facilities, a full ski hire outlet & ski tuning workshop. If requiring snow clothing hire - you can get your gear from here so you'll arrive on mountain appropriately dressed for snow conditions.

Hoys Snow Travel Service can arrange private charters for groups to get to Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain. We can organise your group’s whole trip including accommodation, coach, resort entry and lift passes, lessons and rental equipment.
