Dinner Plain Ski Hire & Services


Dinner Plain Ski Hire & Services

Dinner Plain has adequate amenities for those on a ski holiday, but it’s a reasonably small town so these are somewhat limited.

Dinner Plain Ski Hire and Snowboard Rental

There are two Dinner Plain shops that offer ski and snowboard equipment hire (including helmets and clothing), with two of them located on the main corners of the village next to the roundabout. The Hotham Resort owned shop offers different options for lift ticket, lesson and rental packages which appear on the surface to save money, but they charge a little more for the equipment rentals so you probably don’t save anything.

Hoys is another Dinner Plain ski hire shop. This is the best spot to go if you’re looking for cross country ski gear or snowshoe hire.

Or Snow Monkey provides a ski/snowboard butler service whereby they bring rental equipment to the comfort of your lodge/chalet. The rates also tend to provide better value for money than the two Dinner Plain ski shops.

Alternatively there are Mt Hotham ski hire shops.

Dinner Plain Shops

A shopping spree of Dinner Plain generally shouldn’t take you too long as there are only a few shops.

The two Dinner Plain ski shops have a small range of ski and snowboard clothing, ski/snowboard accessories, and après boots. Hoys also sells a small amount of hardwear, whilst Hotham Snowsports has various Dinner Plain and Hotham souvenirs.

Alpinwood Collections is a lovely snow boutique that sells snow related clothing and gorgeous gifts.

Brandy Creek is a small supermarket selling liquor and basic groceries including a small range of fruit and vegetables and refrigerated goods. The mini mart is fine for small and basic purchases, and the opening hours are very inconsistent, so where possible you’ll want to BYO groceries. Another option is to use Vegitation in Mt Beauty who delivers fruit and vegetables twice weekly or Foodworks in Omeo provide a grocery delivery service.

Other Facilities and Services

Alpine Baby Sitting provide babysitting services (not always operational) or you can try you luck by asking around on the Dinner Plain Community Notice Board Facebook group.
