Looking up the Snake Valley, under the Heavenly Chair lift. Quite few runs funnel in here, hence can be quite a busy area in peak season.
Looking down the Snake Valley at Mt Hotham. The entire run is not shown.
The very base of the Snake Valley.
Traversing the mountains towards distant runs of Gotcha, which is at the boundary of the patrolled area.
Same neighborhood as Gotcha, is the Keoghs trails.
A nice overview of the Mt Hotham Australia Valley. This is where the majority of the skiing takes place. There are gentler trails on the top of the hill range not shown on this snapshot. This is the Hotham Valley having reached Keogh and Gotcha runs.
Another snapshot of Keoghs neighborhood.
Ski Village left in the distance. You can vaguely see the Arlberg Hotel.
If you follow the perimeter of the patrolled area you can circumnavigate the mountains or hills range. This view is from the other side of the valley heading back to Snake Valley down the Spargos or One Tree Hill Run.
Skiing down One Tree Hill.
This is closer to the big -D runs under the Blue Ribbon,away from the areas above. When the snow thaws out these are the first runs to close.
Hothams Blue Ribbon. Nice area to ski when the weather turns bad, as the tree line shields you from snow.
Looking down the Gun Barrel towards Snake Valley.
Australia Hotham Snow Pick.
