Hi all
I am applying for a seasonal job in Mt Hotham this winter. I am from Brisbane and have never been to Mt Hotham. I don't drive. So I wonder how to fly to the nearest airport(s) of Mt Hotham and appx how much it costs.

Does anyone have worked in Mt Hotham before, welcome to share your work experience like how busy they are and whether you have enough time / energy left for skiing or snowboarding

Thanks a lot

Apparently Qantas is going to start flying direct Brisbane to Albury in June. Could be worth a look.

Possibly cheapest option when alll alternatives costs are factored in.
For the benefit of the OP, the Hotham Facebook pages often have (at least in the past) charter flight operators offering deals from Melb (typically Essendon).
Not sure how many flights are going direct from Bris to YHOT or if this is realistic

I just got seasonal work in Hotham myself, and going to drive there alone from Melbourne 17/6.

If anyone wants a lift (pickup Melb CBD/Tulla?) I can do with some company/petrol money.
