What do we do?

Where possible we apply a tour teaching methodology - subject to skier ability and snow conditions, the aim is to learn basic and/or improved cross country (XC) ski techniques while discovering some of the scenic groomed trails Hotham Alpine Resort has to offer.

Perhaps skiing isn’t for you? Snowshoeing is an easy way to get out among the snowgums and appreciate the beauty of our high country away from the crowds.

What do we offer?

Cross country skiing

Scheduled cross country (XC) lessons operate Wednesdays and Saturdays at Hotham.

Scheduled cross country (XC) lessons operate Mondays at Dinner Plain.

We offer separate ‘Intro to XC’ for those coming over from downhill skiing or who may have tried XC before and ‘Absolute Beginner’ for those who may have never been on skis before at all.


For something more relaxed, immerse yourself in magnificent alpine views on top of the world with a Sunset Snowshoe Experience operating Wednesdays and Saturdays out of Hotham Central.

Design your own!

Private and bespoke cross country and snowshoe tours covering various levels of ability and areas around Hotham and Dinner Plain may also be arranged, subject to availability.
