    May 17, 2022 7 min read

    There are Mount Hotham accommodation options to suit every budget and style.

    When the winter weather approaches, skiers and snowboarders are eager to hit the slopes, and Victoria's Mt Hotham is a popular drawcard for skiers and boarders from across the country, with cosy lodges and charming chalets offering accommodation options for every budget.

    The village itself doesn't have the ambience of others, but it has a quirky inverted personality due to its location on top of the mountain, which means spectacular views from your accommodation. There are 30 km of slopes for skiing and snowboarding and it’s probably Australia's best resort for advanced riders looking for a rush, with 13 lifts transporting you up the slopes.

    Hotham Alpine Resort provides premier accommodation, a comprehensive snowsports school and programmes, a variety of entertainment, over 20+ bars and restaurants, and everything else you need to have a complete holiday above the snowline.

    Where should I stay in Hotham when skiing?

    The majority of Hotham's accommodation is conveniently located near the Great Alpine Road. Here's where you can stay, broken into medium and budget-friendly options, as well as luxury or group accommodation. Once you have your accommodation sorted, read the complete Guide to Mt Hotham.
