TOBOGGANING & SNOW PLAY 

Tobogganing is currently not available due to current conditions. Hotham is still open to visitors for sightseeing and limited snow play.

Toboggan slope bookings will now open from 8th July 2020. Tobogganing is only permitted at the designated toboggan slope at Wire Plain (Bus Stop 12) when conditions allow.

Snow Play & Tobogganing

Due to COVID-19, restrictions on tobogganing have been put in place by the Victorian Government. This includes defined times, contact tracing and restricted numbers. Toboggan sessions are free but must be booked in advance online. Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board will be handling all tobogganing bookings. 

Tobogganing is currently not available due to current conditions. Bookings will open on 8th July and can be done online via the Alpine Easy Access platform here. 

Please note: Use of the toboggan slope outside of listed opening hours will be prohibited and will be monitored by the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board and Victoria Police. 
 


Hotham's designated snow play and toboggan area is situated at the beautiful and sheltered location of Possum Flat, adjacent to Wire Plain. A moderate toboggan slope overlooking Possum Flat is suited to kids of all ages. There is also plenty of space to let your imagination go wild and build a snowman, snow castle, or any sort of snow creature!

The snow play area will be open as per the Opening Hours during the season, though the toboggan slope may be closed due to insufficient snow depth. Facilities at the snow play and toboggan area include the Wire Plain day shelter and Snow Stuff Park.

This area is easily accessed via the village bus service at Transit Stop 12. Day parking is also available at Wire Plain Carpark, directly adjacent to the snowplay area. Please observe signs and safety warnings throughout the resort.

Snow Stuff Park

Situated at the snow play and toboggan area, adjacent to Wire Plain and right outside the Wire Plain Bus Stop, Snow Stuff Park is where you’ll be able to hire a range of exciting and fun snow play products including the new DTV Shredder and Sled Legs.

  • The Zipfy: is a compact mini luge toboggan made out of moulded plastic. Ideal for kids and safer than a standard toboggan because you can steer them! The Zipfy will be available to hire.
  • Kids Snowmobiles: Unable to operate in 2020 due to COVID-19 Restrictions.  
  • Snow Play: Snowman moulds, snowball throwers, shields and cool snow castle moulds.
  • Snow BBQ & Bar: Selected weekends throughout school holidays. Classic sausage's in bread and course who could forget the onions!  All Terrain BBQ will be joining us during the season with a licensed snow bar also.
  • New for 2020 expanded snow play retail.
  • Daily Snowplay report on Instagram @snowstuffpark (opening days only)

Bookings are essential for 2020 as walkups will not be accommodated for in peak periods.
