Full time residents of a selected number of postcodes (refer to Benefits tab for eligible postcodes) have access to purchase a Local Pass for winter 2019 at Hotham. The Local Pass entitles you to buy day tickets at an incredibly discounted rate (after payment of an upfront fee).

Better yet, our Locals Pass gives you access to Falls Creek which means these savings apply to a combined 770 hectares and a massive 158 runs across the two resorts!

The pass was introduced for local communities, to allow those to utilise their winter recreational environment to its full potential. In order to purchase the Locals Pass, you are required to supply (at time of purchase and regardless if you have held a Locals Pass in past seasons):

  1. A copy of your driver's licence with you current address
  2. A document/letter addressed to you as proof of full time residency.
  3. Place of employment or for the children a copy of their school ID

We require this information every year within the current Local Pass Form and will not use documentation from prior seasons. Please be aware that without proof of address we will not issue a Local Pass. Be quick to complete the 2019 Order Form and email or post to the Hotham Tickets Team before 30 April 2019 to access the deal.
