Traverse Hotham runs late afternoon Sunset Snowshoe Experiences on Wednesdays and Saturdays out of Hotham Central. The tours operate on and around Mt Higginbotham, a natural alpine oasis with magnificent 360 degree views right in the heart of Hotham. Bring your camera or just soak it up as the sky fills with colour.
They can also tailor snowshoe tours to your ability and in locations you’d like to see more of around Hotham and Dinner Plain.
Traverse Hotham is dedicated to introducing more people to the joys of cross country (XC) skiing and snowshoeing in our magnificent alpine environment. We specialise in the journey, the immersion in nature, understanding the alpine environment and exploring at a human pace. No lift tickets, no queues, no crowds – discover trails less travelled and escape to a whole other world out there!
With more than 35km of scenic groomed trails across Hotham Alpine Resort and Dinner Plain, there’s plenty of scenic alpine terrain to explore once you’re gliding confidently. Where possible in line with conditions and your ability, we use a tour teaching methodology to discover trails less travelled and improve technique at the same time.
Join us for a scheduled ‘Intro to XC’ beginner lesson WED/SAT at Hotham or MON/THU at Dinner Plain – if you’re coming over from downhill skiing, you may be surprised just how different XC techniques are. If you’ve never been on skis at all, we recommend booking an ‘Absolute Beginner’ private lesson.
Perhaps skiing isn’t for you? For something more relaxed, a guided snowshoeing tour is an easy way to get out among the snowgums and explore the pristine beauty of our Winter wonderland. Wednesdays and Saturdays at Hotham, be immersed in magnificent alpine views on top of the world with a Sunset Snowshoe Experience – don’t forget snowshoes hire is included!
Go beyond with private Nordic/XC ski and snowshoe tours covering various levels of ability, trails and backcountry terrain around Hotham and Dinner Plain. Get a group of six or more together for any private lesson or guided experience and enjoy 20% off adult rates for everyone!
