Alpine News - - News -

MOUNT Hotham Ski­ing Com­pany has in­vested $4.4 mil­lion to ex­pand snowmaking cov­er­age and the fi­nal stage of this project pro­vides cov­er­age of Hotham’s sig­na­ture be­gin­ner ter­rain and will be com­plete for sea­son 2017.

The snowmaking ex­pan­sion cov­ers more trails on Heav­enly Val­ley, as well as the great in­ter­me­di­ate ter­rain ser­viced by the Road­run­ner lift and be­gin­ner ter­rain in the Sum­mit area.

This sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment will in­crease the area cov­ered by snowmaking from 25 hectares to 33 hectares, with 100 Techno-Alpin fan guns across the re­sort

One of the ex­cit­ing new les­son pack­ages for 2017 is ‘Max 7’.

With Max 7 lessons, guests will re­ceive more per­son­alised tuition and quicker pro­gres­sion with a max­i­mum group size of only seven guests. Along with smaller groups the lessons will now be longer, with 2.5hrs on snow.

In 2017 all rental pur­chases of four days or greater will now in­clude rest days, as do lift tick­ets. If a four of six day lift ticket is pur­chased, a four of six day rental need only be pur­chased.

Four day lift passes, lessons and rentals of­fer a rest day and this is in ad­di­tion to the ex­ist­ing five, six and seven day flex­i­ble passes and pro­grams.

Mid­week Magic is now avail­able ev­ery week for win­ter 2017 with three days of mid­week snow fun from Tues­day to Thurs­day avail­able for the price of a two day lift pass.
