Whether you are driving yourself on the Great Alpine Road, enjoying being driven by coach or landing from above… Hotham is Australia’s most accessible resort.
Important Note for all guests about snow chains and driving to Hotham Alpine Resort:
All vehicles travelling The Great Alpine Road must carry Diamond Pattern Chains at all times during the declared snow season and must be fitted where directed.
Diamond pattern snow chains (ladder chains, spider chains and snow socks are not permitted) are now mandatory for all vehicles travelling on The Great Alpine Road and entering the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort. It is a legal requirement for all vehicles entering the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort, and it is also a safety measure.
You can hire chains at the base of the mountain, in Myrtleford from Rays Ski Centre or in Harrietville from Hoys Harrietville Ski Centre or in Omeo from various Service Stations. Hoys Chain Fitting Service operates on the Harrietville approach of the Great Alpine Road when vehicles are required to fit them. This is a free service for Hoys chain customers.
Please note, if the weather is producing snowfalls or low visibility, there may be delays on the Great Alpine Road. If guests are coming from Melbourne during these times we recommend using the Great Alpine Road via Omeo as an alternative route to getting here.
