The more you ride, the more you save

With 320 hectares to discover, there are a mountain of reasons to consider a multi-day pass. Be rewarded with deep discounts when you commit to more slope time, in advance.

The multi-day pass price is dependent on your intended start date. Passes up to 3 days in duration must be used in consecutive days. While other longer passes such as 4 of 6 days allow for two rest days at your discretion. 

Skip the queues

Hotham uses RFID-enabled Snow Pass cards to hold your lift pass and lesson, providing easy access through chairlift gates. Buy online to save time on the mountain and skip the queues or reload an existing Snow Pass online or at the Hotham ticket desk.

Hotham snow guarantee 

If, due to lack of snow, there are less than three lifts (inclusive of at least one lift that services an intermediate trail) operating at Hotham 48 hours prior to your 3pm check-in time of your snow holiday, you may choose to receive a credit or full refund on all pre-paid accommodation and lift company products. If you decide to wait less than 48 hours prior to your 3pm check-in time to see if further lifts open, the credit or refund will be granted based on the number of lifts operational due to lack of snow on the day you request a refund. You may not cancel your holiday on the check-in date. This snow guarantee only applies if a lift cannot be opened due to a lack of snow on the major trail it services. The guarantee does not apply if lifts are on windhold – i.e. not able to be opened due to high winds, low visibility or a combination of these weather elements or undergoing temporary maintenance.
