Mollie HillPrint Page
She was with a group from the Ski Club of Victoria that was stuck at the Feathertop Bungalow during six days of poor weather. On Friday 2 September 1932 a group of six set out from the Bungalow for Hotham Heights. It is believed that before her fatal accident, she slipped and injured her wrist, but after her arm was put in a sling, opted to continue with the crossing.
After the group climbed to the Razorback, she slipped on a steep patch of ice and slid over 60 metres down a steep slope before hitting a tree. A rescue party was quickly organised and she was stretchered to Harrietville and then driven to Bright Hospital. Despite an emergency operation, Molly Hill died of intracranial bleeding from a depressed fracture of the skull later that night.
She is buried in the Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery.
