Players has a fully equipped kitchen and supplies all basic condiments (salt, sugar, tea, coffee, spices, herbs) and cleaning needs. Breakfast ingredients (cereals, toast, spreads, etc.) are provided but other meals are your responsibility, so you’ll need to bring your own banquets. Supplies are available on the mountain, but they can be erratic and usually expensive. All beds have doonas and pillows. There is no need to bring linen as Players now offers a complete linen service which includes a flat and fitted sheet, pillow case cover and towel. (BYO Face washer)
You need to pre-pay your resort entry online.
Your cars condition is important, make sure the engine is clean, battery and ignition system are in good condition, and there is Anti freeze in the radiator. RACV services are available but it is usually a cold wait, and joining the RACV on the mountain is now no longer a cheap option! There is no petrol on the mountain so make sure you have enough fuel to get up and down before you leave Omeo or Bright. During the ski season you must carry chains!!!. You will almost certainly have to fit them, so try them before you leave home. As a requirement of the Mt Hotham Resort Management Board and for greater safety, quicker and easier access to the mountain, all visitors must carry diamond pattern tyre chains when visiting Mt Hotham. Ladder chains, spider chains and snow socks are not approved chain types.
We recommend stopping at Hoys in Harrietville to hire your chains as they will fit your chains for free on the mountain road with their mobile service. Whilst at Hoys you may purchase your resort entry tickets.
We suggest you ring the Hotham Road Report on 0357 593 531 prior to departure and check the road conditions. If the Harrietville Road is closed or likely to close you must go via Omeo.
Ski gear can be hired through Hoys Ski Centres. They offer up to 25% off ski & board packages all season long & operate 4 rental shops including the closest shop to Players at Jack Frost- book today – www.hoysskis.com.au
On arrival check the notice board in the entry to find your bedroom allocation. Make yourself known to the manager and stow your gear. All bedrooms are upstairs. Familiarise yourself with the fire equipment and exits.
Skis and poles should be left in the racks in the entry and wet gear in the drying room. No shoes to be worn throughout Players.
Food should be placed in your cupboards, where each cupboard is numbered in the same sequence as the rooms. All refrigerated food and drinks can be placed in the cool room opposite the public phone. The kitchen is fully equipped including cooktops, microwave, indoor BBQ grill, ovens, all utensils, ample crockery, cutlery, and glassware.
You are responsible for cleaning your bedrooms and bathroom and for cleaning up the kitchen/dining areas after your meals. An industrial dishwasher is provided and it is your responsibility to wash and pack away the dishes after use. Please clean your dishes, pots, and pans immediately so that they are available for others to use.

The shuttle bus service will pick you up from Jack Frost (stop 7) and take you through the village, or the Big D. At both of these locations you will find ski hire, ticket sales, lifts, restaurants, bars, ski school etc. Slope access can also be gained by good experienced skiers down the trail opposite Jack Frost, called Frosty Drop.
We ask you to respect all the facilities provided. Please ensure your bedroom and bathroom are thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed before you leave. If there is more than one group in your room, each group is responsible for the cleaning when they leave – don’t leave it to the others.
Remove all left over foodstuffs from the fridges, cupboards and cool room. Do not leave unwanted food behind (The manager will kindly accept any left overs). Check the drying room for your belongings.
