Keogh's and Orchard Lifts Open at Hotham
With 42cm of fresh snowfalls in the last week and a solid average natural snowdepth of 88cm, Hotham is excited to announce that Keogh's and Orchard chairlifts will open on Wednesday 18 August for the first time in 2010.
Belinda Trembath, Mount Hotham Skiing Company General Manager said, "The opening of these lifts will give access to a greater area of intermediate terrain for Hotham guests to enjoy including Mitchell's, Bushwacker and Zirk's at the Orchard, plus the popular Keogh's Bash".
More snow is predicted to fall from Wednesday through until the weekend to top up the snow cover.
This weekend will see a great lineup of events including the FIS Australian and New Zealand Ski X Weekend where world class competitors will race down Hotham's purpose built rider cross course under the Road Runner Chairlift. The Biathlon Fun Sprints Weekend will also take place at Hotham's Biathlon Range at Whiskey Flat and is the last 'on snow' biathlon event for 2010.
Hotham is also gearing up to host our first Gay Short Ski Week with the Frosty Fruits Ski Trip set to arrive in town on Thursday. Plenty of groomed action is expected both on and off the slopes.
