2014 Season Dates
Here are the snow season dates for 2014.
Lifts run from 7th June to 28th September, 2014.
The peak accommodation period of the season at Marouka Lodge stretches from 29th June to 23th August, 2014.
Snow season accommodation outside of the peak periods attracts a 33% discount. So take advantage of early early snowfalls, or spring with a good base!
'E-tag' lift tickets at Hotham
Mt Hotham and Falls Creek have implemented keycard access to lifts. It works like an e-tag that you put in your pocket, away from your phone or wallet. As you pass through the lift gate, it gets scanned to approve your ride. Branded as the Snow*Pass, you buy one for $3 either at the ticket office on the mountain or online, then continue to re-use it through each season. To buy a lift pass, you reload the keycard on the mountain, or from anywhere with Internet access. For the latter, you have an online account via the Mt Hotham e-Store to pre-pay lift passes, lessons and equipment hire.
By reloading at least 14 days in advance, you will save 15% on an adult day ticket. Between 7 and 14 days in advance will gain you a 10% saving. Season passes are also held through the Snow*Pass.
Reminder: no sleeping bags
For years I have been told not to bring my sleeping bag to Marouka Lodge, but I did anyway. Now I have learned my lesson.
Last year I returned from a trip to Canada and within days began to get lines of welts on my legs. The frequency increased and the welts got bigger. They itched badly, and would not heal. It took me a while to figure it out, but the answer was shocking: I was being attacked by bedbugs that I had imported in my sleeping bag that I had opened out on my bed. Spraying and powdering the room was not enough, they had taken hold inside my bed. I had no choice but to buy a new bed, an expensive solution.
So if you habitually bring your sleeping bag to Marouka Lodge, stop it. We do not want your bugs to travel home with anybody else. And we do not want to replace the beds.
Each bed comes with a doona, pillow and extra blankets. Bring your own clean doona cover, sheet and pillow-case.
Great fun at Mt Hotham!
Terrific final day of the 2012 resort season, with freshies!
