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.
