Early snow heralds winter's arrival at Mt Hotham

Posted 9 May 2023

Snow in early May is a harbinger of winter, and with 20 cm already fallen over the past week, we’re ready for the thrill of the chill! It’s time to get the winter woollies out and prepare for the season opening on 10 June.

Don’t forget to sign up for Hotham’s daily snow reports.

Miss Mary’s is expanding. In 2023, you’ll be able to relax with their signature cocktails at their new bar area overlooking Heavenly Valley and Mt Feathertop.
