Thanks to our partner Mount Hotham, you can join us at Australia’s premier winter resort for a spectacular 2017 experience.
24-27 August 2017
We invite you to join us to see first-hand exactly what sets a Ski Aspen package apart from the rest – and all without leaving Australia. Build your package to include just what you need.
A one-time 2017 event designed for you
This is the perfect opportunity for those who haven’t travelled with us before to experience a Ski Aspen style winter holiday. Enjoy similar inclusions that you receive on our Aspen packages as well as our renowned après events and more.
If you’ve been with us before, the Ski [email protected] weekend is a great excuse to catch up with fellow Ski Aspenites and ski with our team. Don’t miss out on what will be the best weekend of the Aussie winter season.
Our 3-day ski improvement program will help take your skiing to the next level with some of Hotham’s most experienced instructors. You’ll work on improving your skills all while skiing heaps of miles. This is 3 full days where our focus is on developing your skiing – both physically and mentally.
We’re taking it one step further by descending on Joyce Brockoff hut (an on-mountain hut with a history of its own) turning it into Ski Aspen Central – themed as a mini version of Aspen Highlands Cloud 9 at Hotham. If you’ve never experienced Cloud 9 before get excited and prepare for champagne. Drop-in to Brockoff Hut anytime on the afternoon of Saturday 26th August to grab a free drink, snack and catch up with friends, all while the DJ plays the tunes.
If you’ve been to Aspen with us before or you ski at Hotham/Falls Creek – spread the word about our Ski [email protected] experience. It will be the season 2017 weekend to remember!

The best winter itinerary of 2017
Thursday 24th August
Arrive and settle in. You can check-in at most places from 4pm which gives you the whole evening to explore Hotham, catch up with friends and meet some new ones. If you arrive earlier in the resort, you can ski from 3pm on your 3-day lift pass. We’ll arrange some welcome drinks from 7pm for all those who’ve arrived at the resort.
Friday 25th August
We start today meeting for breakfast/coffee at 8am, where you’ll meet our team and all other guests. Our Hotham instructing team will then get you on-snow for the first full day of skiing. Choose to be guided around and explore Hotham’s amazing terrain or take as much focused instruction as you like. Lunch 12 – 1pm then back on-snow for the afternoon. You’ll notice that our on-snow groups are small and extremely flexible. We aim to make sure you’re on-snow experience is different from anything you’ve experienced before. Après at Zirkies from 4pm so prepare yourself for a glass of mulled wine and the odd schnapps!
Saturday 26th August
First tracks option. Get out on snow from 7.30am with other guests. Then meet your instructing team at 9am and your day on-snow continues. Lunch is again at 12pm, however our special event will have already begun. Join us for a private BBQ and drinks at the Joyce Brockoff Hut and get swept up in the start of Australia’s ultimate après ski afternoon. We’ll have free drinks, food and our team in place to make sure you’re having a great time – while chatting about all things Hotham, Aspen and Ski Aspen. Choose to get back out on the slopes or stick around and enjoy a real Aspen après experience!
Sunday 27th August
You can start with first tracks again from 7.30am. Once again meet our ski team at 9am and get out there for the final day of our on-snow program. By now you’ll have made some changes to your skiing and you’ll be feeling the benefits. The ski day finishes at 3pm. We’ll have a spot at the top of the Village/Audi Quattro chair all afternoon to say a final thanks for coming and see you next time.
*Scheduled itinerary is subject to change, but will always consist of 3 days with our on-snow Hotham/Ski Aspen team, (optional) lift tickets and après events.
