Take your Snow Holiday to a new level with the Mt Hotham Back Country Sled Tour!

This tour is unique to Australia and offers the snowgoer a scenic ride through the back country of Mt Hotham with sweeping views of the High Country.


What is it?

A custom designed snowmobile sled accommodates 4 people (ages 5+) pulled behind a large Wide/Long Tracked Snowmobile.

Pickup is at the General Store (Bus Stop 6) and we meander down the resort management access tracks to the Snowplay Area at Wireplain.  From there we head into the real back country of Hotham and onto the top of Possum Flat where there is an ideal opportunity for a scenic shot.  After a short break to hear a little bit about the history of the Dargo Valley and Hotham we head down into a snowy tree lined gully motoring through some deep stashes of snow, conditions permitting we then take ride through to the the Dargo Lookout,  then it’s a pull up SnowStuff Hill onto to Wireplain and back to the General Store. 

Duration is 30-45 minutes depending on snow conditions. We also have options of a lunch tour or sunset tour that last approximately 1.5 hours.
