What do we offer?

Cross country (XC) skiing

Join us for a scheduled 'Intro to XC' beginner lesson to pick up the basics you need to get out exploring effectively and safely. If you're coming over from downhill skiing, you may be surprised just how different XC techniques are. If you've never been on skis at all, we recommend booking an 'Absolute Beginner' private lesson.


Perhaps skiing isn’t for you? For something more relaxed but awe-inspiring, our Guided Snowshoeing Adventures are the perfect way to get out amongst the snowgums and pristine beauty of our Winter wonderland. Be immersed in magnificent alpine views on top of the world with a Sunset Snowshoe Experience – don’t forget snowshoes hire is included!

Nordic backcountry

Go beyond with private guided Nordic (XC) ski tours covering various levels of ability, trails and backcountry terrain around Hotham and Dinner Plain. 'Backcountry' comes in many forms and may be enjoyed in myriad ways. Allow us with our extensive local experience and knowledge to guide you on skis through some of the diverse Hotham and Dinner Plain backcountry with itineraries customised to your ability.

Get a group of five or more together for any private lesson or guided experience and enjoy 20% off adult rates for everyone!
