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 2018 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 2018 Order Form and submit before 30 April 2018 to access the deal.

You can now upload your Local Pass day lift pass or daily group lesson via our online store before before you arrive. Skip the Ticket Office queues and head straight out on the slopes by following the below instructions (you can still visit the Ticket Team and upload your day ticket or lessons over the counter if you wish). 


If you have any questions please make contact with our friendly ticketing department via phone or email.
