MT HOTHAM, VIC
The “powder capital of Australia”, Mt Hotham is a resort with a difference. The village is at the top of the mountain, so you ski or board down the slopes from your accommodation. Of the 66 runs, the majority are intermediate and advanced, and the verticals are steep and challenging. Needless to say, the views are spectacular, and while there are beginner runs, this resort is really designed for skiers and snowboarders who love a challenge.
