Most of the accommodation boasts spectacular views from the sweeping Dargo High Plains to the south-west and Mount Feathertop to the north-east. Ski in/ski out accommodation is available in one of the Hotham Heights houses whilst ski-out accommodation is available in the Davenport Village which also provides excellent access to the Big D and beginner ski areas. The village also boasts a childcare centre, supermarkets, shopping options and all the other amenities you would expect of a modern ski resort.

As a first class resort, groups both small and large can be catered to, and the range of facilities at Hotham are second to none.

|DINNER PLAIN ALPINE VILLAGE|
|Dinner Plain is a bustling alpine village in winter due to its proximity to Mount Hotham Resort. By night, the village is alive with families playing in the snow, skiers reminiscing at the bar and groups relaxing around large stone open fires. In winter a host of activities are available, including downhill and cross-country skiing, ski-skating, snowshoeing, and of course family snowball fights and toboggan riding!|
|Hotham is amazing – it has it all. The fantastic variety of terrain, suitable to anyone from a beginner to a pro rider and the park is stacks of fun on a blue bird day. The whole vibe of Hotham is just so relaxing. No other mountain in Australia has a direct airport or helicopter service either!
Powder, sunshine and great friends! It’s the best feeling ever, nothing beats it.
