Resort Entry

Before you strap those skis to your feet, it is important to note that during the declared winter season a Resort Entry fee is applicable to all vehicles stopping in Hotham Alpine Resort, including passengers of coaches and taxis.

More Than Parking

Your resort entry fee covers your access to the resort and helps fund a range of important services 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.

Season Resort Entry Permits provide great value if you are planning to visit the resort for an extended period of time. There are also options available for day & multi-day visitors as well as school and bus groups. 

Do I Need Resort Entry?

All vehicles stopping in a Victorian Alpine Resort must have a valid authorised Resort Entry Permit.  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 you are dropping off family or friends within the resort you are still required to purchase a resort entry permit as all vehicles stopping within the resort boundaries must have a valid permit.

Purchasing

Save time and purchase your Resort Entry online through Alpine Easy Access, so that you can enjoy even more time on the slopes! Mt Hotham's Resort Entry system is now managed through a responsive camera system, ensuring you no longer have to stop at the gate. 

Infringements

If you fail to pay your resort entry you will receive a warning or infringement. If you have received a warning or infringement, please visit our information page for next steps.
