Getting Around

The free Village Bus Service starts at 6.45am, and runs regularly until late (usually around 2am) between the overnight parking areas and Hotham Central. Look for the blue and yellow signs. Our nearest bus stop is Bus Stop 7, just outside Jack Frost, Big D is Bus Stop 5 and Hotham Central is Bus Stop 1.

The Dinner Plain Shuttle Bus (pre-purchased SMART card required) operates from Hotham Village (in the car park opposite Hotham Central) or from outside the Big D throughout the day for most of the season (check the timetable in the lodge or grab a copy from Guest Services). Make sure you let the driver know that you are just visiting Dinner Plain to avoid having to pay the resort entry fee. A Dinner Plain Night bus also runs for part of the season on Wed and Sat nights.

Ski lift tickets are available at Hotham Central and Big D, but if you have an existing ticket you can reload on-line. You can purchase a ticket after 3pm for the next day, permitting a free late afternoon ski and queue avoidance next morning.

If you are intermediate level or above, use Frosty Drop and Davenport Access Trail to get to Village Chair. In high season at weekends a ticket office operates at the chairlift load station. If it is closed the operators will permit a free ride up.
