‘Hotham has long been regarded as the gateway to some amazing backcountry touring. No matter what your ability or experience, there’s terrain for everyone’s fancy. From rugged ridges, steep chutes or wide-open powder bowls, the backcountry surrounding the resort is vast and visually striking.’ – Drew Jolowicz

For 2020 season take advantage of the fact that no lift tickets are required – no need to wait for ticket releases!
Flying in the winter presents a higher than average likelihood that flights may be postponed or cancelled due to adverse weather. We are only going riding, it’s not mission critical flying so essentially we only go when the weather is fair. This works well with the backcountry as if the weather is no good for flying, it is unlikely to be the best for touring.
If the tour is postponed due weather we will all work together with Hotham Snowsports to re-book the next best date that suits all.
This package has been put together by our Chief Pilot Anatole Mills who is an avid skier. After doing two seasons driving the airport shuttle in Chamonix and skiing at all other moments possible, it is time to combine the two things he loves most: flying and riding off-piste. Depending on group size he has also volunteered his hard-earned to make up numbers if required – such is his froth for the mountains!
Call Anatole on 0415 919 646 to organise multi-day trip. An excellent option for those new to backcountry as you can do the intro tour on the first day and explore even further afield on the second. Why not enjoy Hotham Resort for a few days and impress everyone with your newfound slash styles.

The inaugural Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival in 2018 was created to showcase the little-known food and natural beauty of Flinders Island – a windswept, rocky outcrop perched on the north-east tip of Tasmania with a permanent population of around 900 people. Festival organisers invited some of Australia’s best chefs to discover the bounty of Flinders Island and the resulting event received national coverage.

Breathtaking Three Hummock Island sits just off the coast of North West Tasmania. It is a magical place of granite coastlines, protected coves, sweeping beaches and surprising diversity.
Three Hummock Island has one of the purest environments on the planet – crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, inland lakes and forests remain largely untouched.
Twenty kilometres away, a Baseline Air Pollution Station consistently measures the air as the cleanest in the world.
Many paths on the island take you to locations of exceeding beauty. By climbing some 237 metres up South Hummock – the highest point – you can take in a view of the island, nearby Hunter Island and mainland Tasmania.
Birdlife abounds on the island, with over 90 species recorded. Wild ducks, black swans and eagles frequent the small lakes behind the sand dunes lining the beaches. A wide variety of sea birds are seen around the coast, including international visitors that come to the Island to breed. Short-tailed Shearwaters are a spectacular sight as they return in thousands to their rookeries at dusk, and penguins can be observed making their nightly trip up the beach to their nests during the summer months.
We love to welcome guests to our secluded paradise. Escape to Three Hummock Island for a memorable getaway.
