The Snow Dog

Hamish has been driving snow trips for over 15 years. What started out as early mornings, driving friends from Melbourne to catch those first lifts at Mount Hotham, has become the quality service of Snow Dog Transport.

Living in the alpine region means he's regularly seen on the Mount Hotham and Falls Creek slopes during the winter, and getting hikers to the Alpine Crossing during the warmer months. Sharing stories and local knowledge with everyone he comes in contact with.

Delightful journey to Mt Buffalo Chalet! Hamish made the windy road smooth sailing.

His passion for the snow has also given him a wealth of experience, both here and across the globe. He regularly writes for Snowriders Australia about his experiences skiing through Japan, Canada and the United States, as well as his adventures in the backcountry.

Whether or not there's snow on the ground, you're heading to the airport or need a guide for a tour of Victoria's wine regions, Hamish is always happy to help. Snow Dog Transport is the perfect combination of personal service, comfort and style.

If you ever get the chance to travel to Tokyo, there is a statue outside Shibuya station of a dog who returned to the station everyday for over nine years to wait for his owner who never returned. He is remembered in Japanese culture for his loyality and fidelity, that dog's name was Hachikō.
