2022 Season Updates | Hotham Alpine Resort (mthotham.com.au) 

Travel to Dinner Plain 

If you have
not driven to Dinner Plain before, it is STRONGLY recommended to travel during
daylight hours and review the Alpine forecast before departing. During weather
events the Alpine Road can cause delays travelling to Dinner Plain and can be
closed for long periods of time, so be prepared with warm clothing, food and
water for the trip. We recommend travelling to the resort via Omeo as it is the
smoother and safer drive, especially during the winter months. 


Resort Entry 

During the declared snow season all visitors to Mt Hotham must pay a resort entry fee, which covers essential winter services provided to guests, including the Mt Hotham Ski Patrol, village snow clearing, free village transport, traffic and car parking services, cross country trail grooming, waste management and environmental management.  If you travel directly through the resort from Dinner Plain / Omeo to Harrietville or Harrietville to Dinner Plain / Omeo and do not stop, you will not require a resort entry permit.  Your resort exit point must differ from your resort entry point.  If using the facilities at Mt Hotham we recommend purchasing your tickets 7 days in advance as this will be the most cost-effective option. 



To ensure you
and other road users can reach the slopes more safely, diamond pattern
wheel chains must be carried during the snow season and
fitted when directed. Chains can be hired from several locations prior to
ascending the mountain. 


Diesel Cars

Make sure your
diesel vehicle is well prepared for the cold temperatures at Hotham. If you
drive a diesel vehicle, you’ll need to fill up with a special ‘Winter mix’,
also known as ‘Alpine Diesel’, which is sold in towns close to Hotham such as
Omeo, Bright and Myrtleford. Petrol vehicles do not require special fuel

Transfers, Alpine Snowball Express provides a professional
and economical coach & bus service during the annual snow season.
A means of transport to Mt Hotham & Dinner Plain. 


Electric Cars 

Make sure your
electric vehicle is well prepared for the cold temperatures at Hotham &
Dinner Plain. Being an all-electric vehicle, the power will drain more quickly
in colder temperatures, especially if the vehicle is in a standstill / road
closure from Harrietville end. There is a Tesla Charging Bay (Gen 2 & 3) at
the resort and it’s important that you check your vehicles compatibility with
our system prior to arriving.  There is a
charging Station in Ovens (1.5hrs) and Omeo (45min) from the resort.

The Closest
Petrol Stations are located in Bright (1hr) and Omeo (45min). If you do not
