Pg. 116 The Hotham Road Gap

Chill Factor - - Introduction - By Katya Crema

Four decades of an iconic jump

Hotham is fa­mous for many things; a vil­lage at the moun­tain’s sum­mit, rugged alpine ter­rain with spec­tac­u­lar vis­tas of Feather­top, wicked side­coun­try, après-ski at Zirky’s Bar, and of course… the in­fa­mous Hotham Road Gap.

Ev­ery­one knows of the jump, some have even wit­nessed it.

In 2015, Hotham’s his­tory was reignited and the road was once again jumped in spec­tac­u­lar style. This year, Chill­fac­tor looks at four unique per­son­al­i­ties who have con­quered the road gap. Each of them has a unique story to tell.
