The Snow Park at Dinner Plain, set among the pristine bush of the Victorian Alps, is the perfect place for kids and beginners to experience snow and skiing in a fun and safe environment.
The Cobungra Platter Ski Slope at Scrubbers End has a gentle grade and an easy-to-use poma lift that is ideal for children or those learning to ski. Take part in a group ski lesson on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays at 10am or book a private lesson with a friendly instructor.
Can't get enough? Push on into the night every Wednesday and Saturday. Skiing and snowboarding not your thing? There's plenty to keep the whole family entertained at Dinner Plain's Snow Park. Take a break at the Café Play at the base of the slope, build a snow man, or head over to the Pea Shooter Toboggan Slope. Pea Shooter is free to use. Bring your own toboggan, or rent one from one of the ski shops in the village.
Located at the eastern end of the village, find the Snow Park at Scrubbers End off Big Muster Drive, Dinner Plain.
Looking for something more adventurous? Head out on a sled dog ride, try cross country skiing or snowshoeing. For a downhill rush, jump on one of the regular shuttle bus services from Dinner Plain to Mount Hotham, just 10km away.

To go skiing in Dinner Plain, you'll need two things: a Snow Pass Card and a Lift Pass. Here's a breakdown:
Snow Pass cards
Your Snow Pass card is a plastic card that you keep and use to load your lift pass credits onto, much like a Myki or Opal card is used for public transport. You can buy a Snow Pass card for a one-off payment of $5. Don't throw it out! Everyone of all ages will need their own Snow Pass card. Purchase them from the Hotham Online Store or at Dinner Plain or Hotham ticket offices.
Dinner Plain lift passes
TUBE FOR FREE - All Dinner Plain lift passes give you access to ride the tube slide!
Your lift pass will be loaded onto your Snow Pass card. Dinner Plain lift passes are available at the ticket booth at the base of the slope in Dinner Plain, at The Alpine Life ski shop in Dinner Plain, or at Hotham ticket booths.
The below prices are per day. Child tickets are available for kids aged 6-17 and proof of age may be required. Family tickets are for two adults and two children. Children aged five years and under ski free when accompanied by a paying adult.
