Skiing & Snowboarding

450 hectares, 92 runs, 14 lifts – it’s a match made in heaven for skiers and snowboarders.

There are few things more exhilarating than weaving your way down a mountain, poles crunching in the snow and powder jettisoning from your skis as you execute perfect turns. For those who prefer things sideways, strapping into your snowboard bindings for the first run of the season or for your very first time is equally exciting.

Falls Creek’s diverse terrain is ideal for all skill levels. Runs like Wombats Ramble (the longest green run in Australia) and Drovers Dream are perfect for beginners. Intermediates are literally spoilt for choice with the blue runs of Sun Valley and Ruined Castle providing an excellent range of gradually harder runs to test themselves out on – we call it “progression-perfect” terrain.

For the serious slider, almost a quarter of the skiable area at Falls Creek is advanced terrain. This means steep and fast black runs with plenty of trees and powder stashes.

Join our guides and experience the Bogong High Plains by Snowmobile.

Snowmobile Tours provide you with an exhilarating experience to explore the vast back-country areas of Falls Creek, while taking in the stunning alpine surroundings and spectacular views. You can choose to drive the snowmobile yourself, or sit back and enjoy the views as a passenger (one passenger per driver).

Tours take in the magnificent views of Mt McKay, The Summit, Frying Pan Spur, Ruined Castle and the very windy Road 24, which runs down the back side of the Summit allowing tours to go as low down as Howman’s Gap (tour routes change regularly depending on weather and snow conditions).

Bookings must be arranged at least two hours in advance through the Activities Desk located at Falls Creek Sports in the Village Bowl. For bookings and enquiries call 1800 20 44 24.

Tobogganing

Falls Creek welcomed a new area for sliding in 2016 with a second toboggan slope opening in the Village Bowl.

Located at the top of the Gully chair, take the free lift ride up and enjoy toboganning fun for free!

For a faster ride the other toboggan slope is located at Windy Corner, near the Cross Country Ski trailhead. Toboggans are available from most snowsport rental outlets throughout the village or from the Cross Country Ski Centre at the Windy Corner carpark. Make sure you check the toboggan slope is open before you rent equipment. Snow tubing is a great alternative if tobogganing is not available.

Please be advised that for liability reasons the designated toboggan slope is the only location at Falls Creek that tobogganing is legally permitted. There are also restrictions on the type of craft you can use on the toboggan slope. Moulded plastic toboggans weighing under 2.5kg are the only craft allowed. Please be mindful of this restriction and that it has been put in place by Ski Patrol for the safety of all visitors using the slope.

Falls Creek is the first resort in Australia where you can slide a ski trail on a bike made for the snow.

You’ve tried hitting the slopes on skis, snowboard, tube and toboggan – but have you tried snowbiking? Snow bikes are a unique way to experience Australian snow with an exhilarating ride that is sure to get the adrenaline pumping!

The Kids Snowmobile Park features a dedicated track to drive around, all within the confines of the Village Bowl area.

Sessions are supervised and come with the required safety gear and instructions.

Cross Country Skiing

Falls Creek is proud to be Australia’s home of Cross Country with 65+ km of groomed trails free to access.

This Winter why not try your hand at cross country skiing? Heading off cross country is a great way to experience all that Falls Creek has to offer. Since removing trail fees in 2011, Cross Country Skiing has exploded in popularity as more and more visitors ‘go Nordic’ for the first time. As a fun, safe and easy to learn activity, ‘XC’ is something the whole family can try together.

Falls Creek is known as the home of Australian Cross Country Skiing for good reason. Not only is it home base for the Australian National Team but it also has one of the most expansive trail networks of any resort in the country. Through 65km of groomed trails you can gain access to corners of the Bogong High Plains rarely seen by most visitors. Take in breathtaking panoramic views across the vast plains, deep valleys, snowy mountains and majestic Rocky Valley Lake. This is the pristine High Country at its best.

You don’t need a lift pass to get on the trails so cross country is an excellent way to experience the snow on a budget. A purpose-built instruction and training area is also on hand to make the sport more accessible than ever.
