Announcements

Good News: SNOW FALLING. Bad News: All lifts on windhold and unlikely to open today. But more good news is there's a lot of snow forecast today and tomorrow, with winds easing for tomorrow. Check the upgraded Falls Creek app for operations updates.
Fresh snow, great skiing and incredibly low prices for the Grand Final Long Weekend, including $22 for adults wearing tu-tus on Sunday. The 2017 Hero Pass is on sale now. Same price as last year. The BFF Plan (Bring A First-Timer For Free) is on every day for the rest of the season.
