More snow at Hotham for winter 2017
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.
◆ FRESH: Mt Hotham has heavily invested in snowmaking over the past two years and such infrastructure will allow for continued coverage over the resort.
