    if Hotham is open and there is snow cover on the slope then I can't imagine why it wouldn't. if Hotham is not operating then dp lift probably won't either

    just educated guesses, no knowledge

    Even if the POMA lift at DP is not turning there should be Nordic skiing. I am hoping there will be snow , grooming and a chance to XC ski from DP to Wire Plain at Hotham and back to JB Hut ( a snow camp base camp) this late August 2021.

    we spent lockdown at Hotham, and while the lifts weren't running, they were occasionally grooming the xc tracks. those that had snow anyway. the season was quite a struggle!
