Do I need chains for my car, and is there somewhere I can get these from before getting to Mt Hotham/Dinner Plain?
Legally, you are required to carry chains when visiting the mountain. We recommend stopping to rent snow chains for your car at 'Hoys' in Harrietville which is the next town past Bright.
If we are wanting to drive our car up to Mt Hotham for the day, is there parking and do we need a pass?
If you do want to stop in the main Mount Hotham village you may need to purchase an alpine easy access pass which is the resort entry.
You can purchase it at this website, Alpine easy access pass.
Is there any fuel stations on the mountain?
There are no service stations on the mountain. Bright and Omeo are the last places you can get fuel from before Mt Hotham/Dinner Plain.
(If you have a Diesel car, make sure you have filled with alpine fuel)
