Vale Hans Grimus

Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board and the Mt Hotham community would like to express their deepest regret at the passing of Hans Grimus, a pioneer of the Australian snow industry and one of the forces behind the development of Mt Buller.

Mr Grimus was director of the Orange ski lift company, one of two ski lift companies that operated for some time at Buller, and is probably best known for his award-winning Hotel Pension Grimus hotel and restaurant, and the Grimus Chairlift named in his honour.

Mr Grimus was a true Australian character and success story, and has left a lasting mark on the Australian snow industry.

Our deepest condolences to his wife Lotte and the Grimus family.

Jon Hutchins, CEO Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board
