Beginner XC ski lessons follow a tour teaching methodology - subject to skier ability and snow conditions, the aim is to learn basic and/or improved XC ski techniques while discovering some of the more than 35km of scenic groomed trails Hotham has to offer.
Perhaps skiing isn’t for you? The snowshoe tours are an easy way to get out amongst the snowgums and appreciate the beauty of our high country away from the crowds.
Scheduled XC lessons operate Wednesdays and Saturdays, offering 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.
Late afternoon ‘Sunset Snowshoe’ tours also operate twice a week on and around Mt Higginbotham, a natural alpine oasis with magnificent views within the midst of Hotham.
Bespoke XC and snowshoe tours covering various levels of ability and areas around Hotham may also be booked by arrangement, subject to availability.
