Located at Dargo Court, Mount Hotham, the Shepparton Alpine Club provides spectacular accommodation located at Mt Hotham, Australia's highest ski resort. Mt Hotham is easily accessible by car or bus with sealed road access via the Great Alpine Road through Bright or Omeo. Travel from Melbourne is approximately 4.5 hours via Bright or 5.5 hours via Omeo..
Chains must be carried, and fitted where signed. Chains can be a pain! But if you hire chains from Hoys off mountain, they will fit them for free!
Once at Hotham Heights, you can drop off your gear to the lodge (we have two toboggans outside the lodge, or call Snow Tow) before moving your car to one of the overnight parking areas further down the mountain towards Dinner Plain. Free buses will bring you back up to Hotham Heights, but dress warmly as you might have to wait 10 minutes.
Shepparton Alpine Club is located at the end of Dargo Court in the Davenport Village area, and is within easy walking distance of Jack Frost, village transport, pub, restaurants, supermarket and the Big D beginner chair lift and ski school.
It's also just a short walk or ski to the downhill ski slopes and 35 kms of cross country ski trails.
The resort is fully lit at night providing safe walking access from lodges to transport and village restaurants. A free bus service is provided by the resort from the car park to Jack Frost until 3 am. A short walk away, the resort also provides night skiing at the Big D complex on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In summer, you can drive into Dargo Court and unload almost at the lodge door.
