With a base elevation of 5,740-feet, Mount Hotham is Victoria’s highest ski area consisting of 605 acres of terrain. Unique to this village, the lodges at Mt. Hotham are situated on the snow peaks with trails twisting down through the village to their 13 lifts. Mount Hotham is inter-connected to Falls Creek, so transportation between the two via coach service or an inter-resort helicopter is readily available.
