Mount Hotham Alpine Resort is only 10 minutes away and offers Australia's best powder snow, with areas to suit everyone including downhill and cross-country skiiers, snowboarders, snow shoers, hikers and those just sight-seeing.
For skiing and snowboarding beginners, Dinner Plain village has an easy slope and platter lift, with instruction available. Mt Hotham lift tickets are valid at Dinner Plain. Lift tickets valid for the Dinner Plain lift only, are available from Alpine Life DP and at the Lift Kiosk.
The slope has snow making and lighting which allows for Night Skiing on Wednesday and Saturday nights - weather permitting.
We recommend Hoys Skis in Dinner Plain for all your downhill, cross country and snow play equipment needs.
With sufficient snow falls, the toboggan slope is available adjacent to the Ski Slope, no charges apply. Toboggans can be hired from Hoys Ski Hire.
Dinner Plain has 16 km of cross country ski trails for all standards, which weave in amongst the majestic snowgums. These trails are also suitable for snow shoeing, an option for those who enjoy a slower pace. For the more adventurous cross country skier, try the Mt Hotham Dinner Plain Ski Trail, 11 or so kms of varying standards, winding through the forest, across open snow plains, and offering a wide variety of panoramic vistas.
Traverse Hotham is dedicated to introducing more people to the joys of cross country (XC) skiing and snowshoeing in our magnificent alpine environment. No lift tickets, no queues, no crowds - discover trails less travelled and escape to a whole other world out there!
Where possible we apply 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 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.
Scheduled XC lessons operate Wednesdays and Saturdays at Hotham and in a first for season 2019 also 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.
Private and bespoke XC and snowshoe tours covering various levels of ability and areas around Hotham and Dinner Plain may also be booked by arrangement, subject to availability
