An entry fee is applied to all vehicles and passengers of coaches and taxis entering Hotham Alpine Resort during the declared snow season. If you are driving your own car, diamond pattern chains must be carried during the declared snow season and fitted as directed. Chains may be hired before travelling to Mt Hotham, from ski outlets in Omeo, Bright, Harrietville etc. Resort Entry may be easily purchased online before travel, or from kiosks in the resort.

It’s a good idea to also check the antifreeze levels in your radiator, remember to use alpine diesel in your diesel vehicle, and pack a shovel in case you need to dig out your car!
