As excitement builds to the opening of the snow season Falls Creek has altered it’s initial advice and confirms a delayed start, with lifts to begin turning on Monday 29 June.

Stuart Smythe, CEO of Falls Creek Resort Management acknowledges this season is going to require patience and flexibility.

“It was not too long ago that the prospect of any opportunity to put a few turns in was anything but a reality,” Mr Smythe said.

“We have all been experiencing the challenges of this pandemic. The resort and its stakeholders and partners have nonetheless been frenetically getting ready to welcome you.

“With many large venues, there are challenges managing mass gatherings. However, we are confident the steps we are taking will prioritise safety first.”

The key recommendations to avoid disappointment are to purchase an online ticket from Falls Creek Ski Lifts or have an Epic Pass that guarantees ski lift access. Book accommodation if staying overnight. Then visit the Resort Entry Page on the Falls Creek website to purchase and print the Resort Entry Vehicle Pass.

For those keen on cross country skiing, Mr Smythe offers this update.

“Yes, we know you’re keen too, but further details will become available regarding Cross Country skiing as the trail conditions allow grooming activities to commence,” he said.

“Where you’ve booked accommodation in the resort, there will be no limitation to vehicle resort entry. However, natural snow fall is still needed to make the trails ‘kick and glidable’ and it is best to check with your accommodation provider first. Day visitors to the resort will continue to be limited.”
