    Just wondering how parking works when I'm staying at a lodge on mountain at Hotham. Do I just pay for one lot of resort entry then go to long term parking and can leave it there for the whole time I'm there till I leave or do I have to pay for each day I'm in long term?

    I'm coming up next weekend...I sure hope that warm rain forecast changes to something colder with snow or it might suck a little bit :(

    You pay for all the days (24 hr periods) that you will be there. The fee is to cover resort facilities in general, not just parking. You need to buy online before you get there, there is no ticket box.

    yep. on your phone. If you are going to go over at the end, easy to buy the extra day on the phone

    Depending where the lodge is and how long you are staying, on the first day you can park in the day parking area while you ski etc, then unload your gear into the lodge once it is available for you and shift the car to overnight parking. Repeat in reverse on the day you leave - get the car early, check out and chuck everything into the car, ski/snowboard for the day, then get changed for the drive home.
