Mt Hotham

Event information


Note - Must be a member to book this trip

Join fellow L.U.S.T'ies for 5 and a half days of skiing and boarding up at Mount Hotham. We depart from La Trobe (Bundoora) very early Sunday morning for the journey up the mountain, and arrive at Mount Hotham in the afternoon for a cruise around the slopes. 

There are plenty of activities to keep you entertained after the lifts stop turning. Monday and Wednesday nights are the big-themed party nights. Every year LUSTies take over The General Store (The Genny) to show the mountain what we’re made of. With shows from the notorious DJ Eddy, you’ll be sure to be dancing the night away and having a great time. 
This trip is possibly the most fun you will have whilst at uni, you’ll get to spend 5.5 days being completely carefree with some of the best people you could meet.

Disclaimer: We do not suggest this trip to our first time skiers and boarders. This is not because we dont want you to come, we are just aware that most attendees will be skiing with those at their own ability and we dont want you to feel left behind. If you are a beginner who has skied/boarded before and you can get down a green run that is fine! However, for our first time snowboaders and skiers we recommend the Beginners Trip - you'll have a lot more support with learning the sport, and much more fun whilst you learn. Snow-sports are high risk, and we endure to make our trips safe and accessible for all our members.
