Book Lift Passes

Grab your skis or snowboard and head to the mountains. Purchase your lift passes online before your visit and you can enjoy savings of up to 15% off.  Don't forget that if you book your accommodation with Hotham Holidays we can match the discounted online pricing and book it all in for you or simply book online via the methods below.

Hotham uses RFID-enabled Snow Pass cards to hold your lift pass and lesson, providing easy access through chairlift gates. Buy online to save time on the mountain and skip the queues or reload an existing Snow Pass online or at the Hotham ticket desk. 

Learn more about our Snow Pass cards with our FAQs.

Any lost, stolen or broken cards will incur a $5 replacement fee and prices throughout the website do not include the cost of a Snow Pass card.

Ski free lift passes

Children 5-yrs and under and seniors 70-yrs and over get to ski or snowboard for free. All you need is a valid Snow Pass Card, from there we can load your free lift pass. Children under five need to be accompanied by a paying adult.

Hotham snow guarantee 

If, due to lack of snow, there are less than three lifts (inclusive of at least one lift that services an intermediate trail) operating at Hotham 48 hours prior to your 3pm check-in time of your snow holiday, you may choose to receive a credit or full refund on all pre-paid accommodation and lift company products. If you decide to wait less than 48 hours prior to your 3pm check-in time to see if further lifts open, the credit or refund will be granted based on the number of lifts operational due to lack of snow on the day you request a refund. You may not cancel your holiday on the check-in date. This snow guarantee only applies if a lift cannot be opened due to a lack of snow on the major trail it services. The guarantee does not apply if lifts are on windhold – i.e. not able to be opened due to high winds, low visibility or a combination of these weather elements or undergoing temporary maintenance.
