Hotham, VIC

Hotham is one of a kind. It’s Australia’s only upside down resort (the village is on top) and offers more choices and more powder than any other Australian ski resort.

The off piste terrain is vast and, refreshingly, there are fewer people to get in your way. Soak in incredible views over the Australian Alps, get off the grid and explore, or enjoy exhilaration-filled days on the slopes. Hotham is yours to conquer. Hotham Alpine Resort operates all year round and is located in the Australian Alpine National Park only 4.5 hours drive from Melbourne and 8 hours from Sydney.

In the winter you can easily enjoy everything the resort has to offer with on and off mountain accommodation at Hotham or Dinner Plain, which is a luxurious alpine village only 10 km from the resort. The accommodation available to book includes self-contained apartments, chalets, lodges and motel style rooms that are suitable for singles, couples groups or families.

Through the support of the Australian Ski Area’s Association (ASAA) and Hotham, DWA members are provided with a 50% concession on a regular full day lift pass (adult and child) on presentation of your current valid DWA membership card at any Hotham ticket office.

This concession applies both to the person with a disability and a person providing onsnow support if needed. This will contribute to the goal of providing access for people with disabilities at the same total price of a single lift pass.

You will need to purchase your lift pass and present your DWA membership card at any ticket outlet.

The Hotham Snow Sports Centre has substantial capability with many instructors available to deliver adaptive snow sports lessons to people with all types of disabilities. Their friendly, enthusiastic, very capable & experienced instructors can help you advance and develop your adaptive skiing/riding skills and make your visit to Hotham that much more enjoyable.

DWA strongly advocates DWA members take regular lessons to both learn how to properly and safely ski/ride with the adaptive equipment and to progress skill development if that is your goal.
Remember that you can request a DWA volunteer guide to assist you during your lesson so that your instructor can focus on delivering the lesson.

The Hotham Snow Sports Centre is located within the Hotham Central building (opposite side of Great Alpine Rd to Resort Management office). It is recommended that you book adaptive lessons over the phone so that you can discuss your specific requirements and capabilities with the Hotham Snow Sports Centre.
