If visiting Dinner Plain during the snow season we strongly recommend that you visit the winter safety website: http://snowsafe.org.au  This website provides all the information you will need to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday.
  • The regional location of the resort means there a few places to restock provisions such as snack food and medicines nearby or on the way. We recommend that you purchase any such items at the approaching townships of Omeo, or Bright as the grocery stores in the Dinner Plain and Mt Hotham are currently not open.
  • We STRONGLY recommend travelling to the resort via Omeo as it is the smoother and safer drive, especially during the winter months.

To combat the risk of sunburn, use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin. When on the slopes, the glare from snow can cause “snow blindness” so ensure you have high-quality sunglasses or goggles when participating in snow activities. Your car should have anti-freeze in the radiator and snow chains must be carried at all times during the snow season. Please ensure that you do not leave your handbrake on, as it will freeze.
