Strategies & Key Projects

Throughout 2020, Mt Hotham Resort Management focused on securing Government grant funding to deliver major infrastructure projects that have the ability to accelerate economic recovery, while meeting long-term strategic objectives associated with the Masterplan.

To this effect, the Resort Management is delivering key infrastructure projects leveraging $5 million of State Government investment – the Alpine Gateway at Loch Car Park and the Hotham Alpine Base at Whiskey Flat.  Both projects are in alignment with the Mt Hotham Masterplan.

The Hotham Alpine Base at Whiskey Flat was completed prior to the 2022 snow season and is now available for use by the Mt Hotham community. Find out more here.

The Alpine Gateway car park was used successfully during the 2023 Snow Season to provide access to the Heavenly Valley area of the skifield, and the full facility is due for completion in 2023/24. 

Future projects

The resort also secured funding for the Hotham Hub at Wire Plain, and we are now seeking commercial partners for the new venue. Find out more here

Also in 2022, the RMB invited tenders for the Hotham Precinct Development to transform the Hotham village centre and improve amenity for visitors. The tender process is currently under way.
