    Inexpensive accommodation demands you provide sheets and towels. We can provide but there is a cost involved so you pay more.
    There are also fully catered lodges that do 3 full meals as well. But you'll pay.
    Many choices. Your pick. :)

    It is spring.Camping at J.B. Hut is the cheapest and most memorable option of all in the D.P./Hot Ham area.

    Gravbrot and SCEG do meals. Others provide basic breakfast. I think many lodges have sheets and towels for an extra fee.

    Thanks for carrying the country forwards but I have a few thoughts on that matter.

    The tax base for the evil empire can still be operated from mission control with more people having more flexible part time work rather than fewer people with full time employment and more people looking for suitable employment. Moreover if organized religions and big business paid their fair share of tax and if the capital/revenue raised was more fairly redistributed through the more needy levels of society then more people could have a chance to visit our National parks and spend that money in local community businesses nearby .
    Lastly volunteer workers help keep this country ticking along. If all volunteers desisted from their most invaluable work then the country would probably grind to a halt on some levels.

    Always carry work gloves in the car for chain fitting . Plus a tarpaulin to lie or kneel on for this purpose. If you do not carry chains here in VIC. and are asked to show you have them in your car by resort staff then you will be turned back. If the police ask to see them and you cannot demonstrate you have them then you will be fined and turned back. If you drive an AWD as I do , or a 4 WD then fit chains to front wheels only. Having All Terrain tyres helps quite a bit and it is worth spending the money on them. This season out of approximately 25 VIC ski days so far , I have fitted chains only twice. Once at Lake Mtn. and once coming up from Harrietville towards Dinner Plain , over Mt. Hot Ham.
