Due to the closure of the lift operations and subsequent lack of bookings with the shutdown of the Melbourne and metropolitan area we have had to close The Lodge until at least August 19th and quite possibly for the rest of the season.
Welcome to the Lodge Ski Club, one of the friendliest club lodges on Mt Hotham!
Since 1980 The Lodge Ski Club has provided quality, affordable accommodation for our members and guests, with many guests returning year after year, and quite a few choosing to become members.
What makes staying at The Lodge a great experience? It’s the welcoming atmosphere that has been nurtured for many years (thanks Tammy!) and continues with our newest Manager Guido (“Geedo/Gweedo” or “Dutchie”) who is known for his cheery character and caring nature. Guido, his wife Chris and their three boys have been regular visitors to Mount Hotham for many years and it’s where Guido and Chris actually met too! They know the mountain well and can give you advice on where to hire ski gear, how to organize lessons, the best runs to ski - depending on the weather and your ability, and the best places to eat and drink.
At The Lodge you’ll feel welcome as soon as you enter. Our lounge and dining areas are on street level – no winding stairs or passages to negotiate before you’re greeted. Our members are known for being inclusive and look forward to meeting and chatting with guests while cooking or sitting around the fire.
Mt Hotham is renowned for having the best and most reliable snow in Victoria and your stay at The Lodge puts this right at your doorstep.
We’re located a short walk from Bus Stop 8, with the cross-country ski trails at our front door, and excellent snow-play areas close by for family fun. The Lodge welcomes families, however please note that, due to our building design and our concerns for small child safety, we do not accommodate children under 4 years old.
