Winter visitors*** Diesel Cars only- please make sure you have diesel additive ready to be put into your diesel tank- do not rely on "Alpine Diesel" unless your tank is 100% empty before you fill up with it. Some days as many as 50+ cars require the RACV for this basic mistake.
Getting a car pass-- Entry before 3pm will be charged for a full days entry. Entry gantries are about 15 minutes from the actual village. Day entry can be purchased on
Chains- see below- if you intend to fit you own chains carry some old gloves, and a rubber/plastic sheet to kneel on. Have your hat and jacket easily accessible
Summer visitors- we can get snow at any time of the year. It is rarely is a problem for more than a few hours.
Where Is Hangmans Drop Ski Club?
Hangmans Drop SC is situated in the Davenport area of Hotham village.
From Harrietville, drive through the commercial area with the visible ski lifts and continue toward Dinner Plain. You pass the Big D, then The General Store on your right. Jack Frost Ski Hire/Bus Stop 7 is about 200m further down the road on the right. Hangmans Drop SC is the 4th building on the right after this- just above the staircase access.
From Omeo/Dinner Plain Hangmans Drop is between Bus Stops 8 and 7 on the left, at the top of the staircase access.
Day Parking is usually available very near the lodge. Your car MUST be moved by the evening to an overnight park for the remainder of your winter stay.
During Summer season only, you can turn right at Jack/Frost/ Bus stop 7 onto Davenport access Track, and park just at the back door of Hangmans on the gravel.
If you arrive before check-in, please be mindful that others are still enjoying their stay. Please do not disturb them.
Food and Eskies can be neatly stored out of the way, in the outside lobby. Please Do NOT start stowing your stuff inside the lodge.
