As part of your resort entry fee, Mt Hotham Resort Management Board provides a free Village bus service to help you move easily from pillow to powder, bar to bar or home after a long day on the slopes. To catch a ride is simple - just wait at a bus stop sign located around the village precinct (refer to below map).
The bus service operates from 6.45am to 1.45am* seven days a week.
