Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, the Frosty Fruits ski trip is back bigger and better, at the highest alpine village in Australia — the Hotham Alpine Resort.
The change of venue came after organiser Adam Bold ironed out kinks of last year’s trip, after the six-hour drive from Sydney to Thredbo proved a deterrent for some.
“So we researched the best ski fields in Australia, and particularly those you could fly direct to. We came up with the Hotham Ski Resort,” Bold said.
“Not only can we fly direct from Sydney to the Hotham airport, the village is located right slap bang on the snow, on the top of the mountain. Just walk in your room, slap on your skis and swoosh off.”
Running from August 19 to 22 — peak snowing season, with great skiing conditions all but guaranteed — the event is suited for serious skiers and novices alike, with parties, dinners and other events to break up the snow-time.
Non-skiers are catered for with the ‘Watchman package’, which offers fun on- and off-snow activities. There’s also a women’s-only program which offers a safe, fun and friendly environment with female instructors and group activities.
All meals, equipment hire, transport, etc are included in the Frosty Fruits ticket prices — all you’ll need to pay for once you’re there are your drinks.
Getting to Mount Hotham isn’t a problem either. There are spaces reserved on QantasLink flights direct to and from Sydney. Melbourne guests can hop on the Frosty Fruits Ski Trip charter bus, departing on the morning of August 19 and arriving at Mount Hotham by lunchtime.
