Hoys Skis has been servicing the Mt Hotham ski area for more than 80 years. We are a family owned/operated business with 4 generations of experience and enthusiasm dedicated to make your snow holiday a great memory. We have 4 central locations in Harrietville, Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain ( & chain hire outlet in Omeo) to ensure you can pick up your gear with the least hassle and all gear is interchangeable if you need to swap. We are lucky to have the best staff on the mountain - most have worked with us for over 5 years - some 20!

Our extensive experience with chain fitting allows us to choose the most appropriate chains for each vehicle, and allows us to provide unrivalled advice - if we believe your car to be unsuitable to travel the Hotham Road we will tell you so, and help organise you to take the bus or taxi. We can also provide security parking for your vehicle in such cases.

Our operation also allows us to provide you with the most up-to-date road conditions which change frequently and surprisingly quickly.

At Hoys A-Frame Ski Centre in Harrietville, you can use the Alpine Easy Access kiosk to pre purchase your resort entry access before heading up the mountain- saving you precious time on the snow. You can also break your journey here with a toilet break, check the conditions & even get your gear tuned. On the mountain, our shops are very conveniently located for any other needs you may have during your stay.

At Hoys, we recognise that you want the best possible ski equipment and have made great efforts to supply equipment of higher than average quality. Further, our equipment is selected so that it is appropriate for the conditions. Our large range of sizes and fittings means we can accommodate just about everyone.

Often skiers who hire clothing elsewhere are disappointed to find that their rental clothing is identical to many others on the slopes. At Hoys, we pride ourselves on the individual look. We choose our clothing from well known fashion brands such as Burton, Rossignol, Surfanic, ROJO, XTM, Elude, Bonfire and Aggression. Our children's range includes functional, high-quality suits with bright, easily identifiable colours.

In all, it is our objective to provide you with our famous personal service to give you everything you need to have a great ski holiday at Mt Hotham, Australia's premier ski resort.
