|When arriving at Falls Creek day visitors should drive though to the Windy Corner car park. The cross country ski tracks head off from outside the Nordic Centre which houses a day shelter, café, showshoe and cross country ski hire and ski school.|
To access the cross country trails from the Falls Creek Village you can either ski out along the aqueduct from the top of the village, or catch a free shuttle bus to Windy Corner from the bottom of the Gully, Falls Creek Express Chairlifts or outside the Accommodation Transfer Terminal.
At Windy Corner you can organise everything you need from gear hire through to private and group lessons. It is also right next to the Nordic Bowl which is the best place to go for your first time.
