The rich and famous travel by private plane because it is time efficient and truly luxurious however they probably don't want you to know how affordable it really is. Departing Lilydale at 7.30 in the morning, the flight to Mt Hotham Airport is just 45 minutes!
There we transfer you by 4WD direct to the summit so you can clip in and be riding Imagine, Snake Gully or the Orchard by 8.45am! Your boarding or skiing will be better knowing all day, your route home is at 10,000ft warm and relaxed and enjoying a beer above the clouds.
Take full advantage of the day to ski until lifts close, then be whisked back to the airport to get airbourne by 5 and home by 6.00pm! Lifts close at 4.15pm, so why not ski until then?
