The Edge – Snow Sports Podcasts for your drive.

The Edge is Team Hotham’s very own Snow Sports Podcast series created for your enjoyment. We’ve also grabbed a selection of snow sports-related podcasts that we have found to help you count down the miles while you make your way to the mountain that we all love, Mt Hotham.

We all know being part of teamHOTHAM is a commitment, for the athletes that commitment is to their rigorous training program on the snow or hitting gates on Slalom Gully at 7 am on a cold winter’s morning or maybe even tuning their skis to keep The Edge of their ski or board razor-sharp. For many parents, one of the many commitments associated with being a race club family is driving, and driving and more driving!

So no matter if your trip to Mt Hotham is once at the start of the season or if you’re the weekend warrior commuting from Melbourne every Friday and back again on Sunday, you can now download the latest episode of The Edge to help you pass the time and learn a thing or two from some of the best elite athletes, coaches & legends of winter sports.
