| The Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board is responsible for ensuring the Falls Creek resort is available for alpine recreation and tourism throughout all seasons and accessible to persons from varied cultural and economic groups. The Board also ensures management of the resort is undertaken in a manner which is respectful of the alpine environment and economically, ecologically, and culturally sustainable.|
The Board works closely with the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council, the statutory body charged with the responsibility to plan and facilitate management of the six Victorian Alpine Resorts.
Members of the Board serve three-year terms and appointments (made by the Victorian Minister for the Environment) are based on skills in administration, management, finance, environment, law, marketing, and tourism.
