Traverse Hotham is dedicated to introducing more people to the joys of cross country (XC) skiing and snowshoeing in our magnificent alpine environment. We specialise in the journey, the immersion in nature, understanding the alpine environment and exploring at a human pace. No lift tickets, no queues, no crowds – discover trails less travelled and escape to a whole other world out there!
With over 35km of scenic groomed trails across Hotham Alpine Resort and Dinner Plain, there’s plenty of scenic alpine terrain to explore once you’re gliding confidently. Where possible in line with conditions and your ability, we use a tour teaching methodology to discover trails less travelled and improve technique at the same time.
Join us for a scheduled ‘Intro to XC’ beginner lesson to pick up the basics you need to get out exploring effectively and safely. If you’re coming over from downhill skiing, you may be surprised just how different XC techniques are. If you’ve never been on skis at all, we recommend booking an ‘Absolute Beginner’ private lesson.
Perhaps skiing isn’t for you? For something more relaxed but awe-inspiring, our Guided Snowshoeing Adventures are the perfect way to get out amongst the snowgums and pristine beauty of our Winter wonderland. Be immersed in magnificent alpine views on top of the world with a Sunset Snowshoe Experience – don’t forget snowshoes hire is included!
Go beyond with private guided Nordic BC Ski Tours covering various levels of ability, trails and backcountry terrain around Hotham and Dinner Plain. ‘Backcountry’ comes in many forms and may be enjoyed in myriad ways. Allow us with our extensive local experience and knowledge to guide you on skis through some of the diverse Hotham and Dinner Plain backcountry with itineraries customised to your ability.
