Snow Play, Sled Dogs & Tobogganing

Tobogganing and snow play are an essential part of any family trip to the snow, and now Hotham has a dedicated snow play and toboggan area








Snow Play & Tobogganing Areas

The snow play area is situated at the beautiful and sheltered location of Possum Flat, adjacent to Wire Plain. A moderate toboggan slope overlooking Possum Flat is suited to kids of all ages. There is also plenty of space to let your imagination go wild and build a snowman, snow castle, or any sort of snow creature!

The snow play area will be open as per below during the season, though the toboggan slope may be closed due to insufficient snow depth. Please observe signs and safety conditions below.

Facilities at the snow play and toboggan area include the Wire Plain day shelter and SnowStuffPark Snow Play Park.
