Mt Hotham Lodge
The Hotham lodge was built by members in the 1940’s when the building code mandated the use of stone in alpine buildings. It was also one of the first buildings on the mountain before lifts or a ski resort when access was literally by horse and cart.
The lodge has been renovated and extended a number of times, the most recent renovation being completed in 2009, adding additional living space, full length glass windows which look down the valley and double glazing.
