Austen is a non-profit Ski Club providing comfortable and convenient accommodation for individuals, families and groups who are looking for a friendly place to stay, rather than an apartment.
The lodge commands breathtaking views of the adjacent mountains and is surrounded by snowgums and wildlife. You can either self-cater using the well-appointed kitchen or enjoy the mountain restaurants that abound nearby.
Relax by the fire in the company of fellow skiers and find out where the best powder runs are.

Austen is nestled in the Dargo subdivision near the edge of a huge ravine that overlooks the Southern Alps. It is a short walk over snow-covered tracks to the commercial establishments and to free village buses that take you to the central summit. Groomed Crosscountry Ski Trails begin near the Lodge and stretch for kilometres in either direction, whilst alpine skiers can ski down the Frosty Drop trail to meet the main ski runs and lifts.
The Hotham “Snow Guarantee” ensures if there is insufficient snow you can either reschedule your holiday or get all your money refunded. See further details on our website at www.skiausten.com.au . All accommodation packages with lift, lesson and hire bookings for Austen Alpine Club are covered by the Hotham Snow Guarantee.
