The Ski Club of East Gippsland is a not for profit ski club located on the Big D at Mt Hotham. We are true ski in and ski out with traditional Lodge style accomodation. As one of the only Ski Lodges on the moutnain to provide a cooked dinner and breakfast for our guests, it is a truly unique, relaxing snow holiday on the mountain with great family friendly facilities.The Ski Club of East Gippsland is one of the oldest ski clubs in Victoria, beginning in the 1920’s as the Omeo Ski Club, a branch of the Ski Club of Victoria. The great alpine fires of 1939 burnt many of the old High Country huts used by skiers on their travels, and the ravages of World War II put the club into recession for the duration of the war. Once the war was over, it became clear that the Omeo population could not support taking on a lease of a site for the lodge at Mt Hotham, so the residents of the Bairnsdale area were introduced to the ski club. For a while the club was known as the Gluhwein Club, before becoming the East Gippsland Ski Club in 1952. Finally, in 1957, the committee changed the name to The Ski Club of East Gippsland, and this name is maintained today.
