Since removing trail fees in 2011 Cross Country has exploded in poularity 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.
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 so learning is more accessable than ever.
Want a low-cost snow activity for your school
group? Consider cross country. Schools love XC.
Not only is it athletic, it is also a fun new way to
experience and learn about a unique part of our
country’s diverse landscape.
The educational opportunities are fantastic with
experienced guides available for any group size.
The village is also well equipped to cater to the
needs of visiting school groups. Contact Falls
Creek today to find out how to bring your school
on a cross country adventure this winter.
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.
Cross Country skiing is easy to pick up, even
if it is your first time on snow. We recommend
instruction and training to get you started. Falls
Creek’s Nordic Centre is there to help you
get your ski on – from beginners on ‘classics’
through to experienced ‘skaters’.
Our expert instructors’ knowledge is only
surpassed by their love of the sport. Whether it is a
group lesson, family tuition or one-on-one training,
our instructors can bring out the best in your skiing
and help you on your way around the trails.
