Arriving at Hotham
If arriving via Harrietville proceed through the village to bus stop 8 (the last stop). If arriving from Omeo, it is the first bus stop.
Use the loading zone to unload your gear and transfer it to Eiger. A sled is usually available on the front entrance landing to make the transfer of gear easier. There is also a luggage delivery service by skidoo available from Jack Frost at bus stop 7, operated by Snow Tow.
Eiger is situated approx. 100m from the road so proceed up the stairs and to the right at the top of the stairs and straight across to Eiger.
Your car must be subsequently parked along the road or in a car park (Slatey Cutting etc.) as directed by the signs or attendants. A minibus service operates along the road to and from the car park.
Snow chains are available for hire from Rays Ski Shop Myrtleford, Hoys Ski Hire Harrietville & Hoys new Omeo Ski Shop, Billies Omeo and Snow Monkey (Melbourne).
If you are travelling by car to Mt Hotham via Harrietville, we recommend hiring chains from Hoys Harrietville. They offer a free chain fitting service on the way up the mountain for Hoy’s hired chains (while you stay warm & dry in your car!). You can get information on conditions and resort entry there as well. Hoy’s provide secure parking at Harrietville so you can drive there and catch a bus to Mt Hotham.
You can travel to Hotham via the Hume Highway or the Princess Highway which will take approximately between 5-6 hours.
Buses run regularly to Mt. Hotham from Melbourne and Albury during the season.
