SHORT TERM PASSES

RESORT ENTRY FEES

When visiting Falls Creek in winter a Resort Entry fee is applicable for your stay. Entry outside of the snow season is completely free. Resort Entry fees are an important part of resort operations, funding essential services such as Ski Patrol, Snow Clearing, Guest Services and much more.

Resort Entry is charged at a cost per vehicle for the duration of your stay. For all short term visits you can buy a Resort Entry Pass at $51.50 per day when bought online. Purchases made at the Resort Entry gate will cost $56.50 per day.

Remember to print your pass before leaving home (it will be attached to your confirmation email).

BUY ONLINE & SAVE

Passes bought online are around 10% cheaper than buying at the gate. They also allow the best convenience. Simply print out the attachment in your confirmation email and display in the windscreen when you park – this means no stopping at the Ticket Box so it saves you time as well as money.

RESORT ENTRY FAQ



Do I need to buy a Resort Entry Pass?
If you plan on bringing your own vehicle to the resort then yes, you do. You will need a Resort Entry Pass that covers the entirety of your stay, including the day of arrival and day of departure (regardless of how how early you plan to leave to head home). Those arriving by bus or private transfer have Resort Entry fees factored already into the cost of your transport fare.

Do I need a Resort Entry Pass for each person coming?
No, your Resort Entry Pass is charged per vehicle and covers everybody travelling in that vehicle .

Do I need a different pass to stay overnight?
No, the Resort Entry Pass covers day trips and overnight stays, but you do still need to park in appropriate day or overnight parking areas.

Do I need to stop at the Ticket Box?
Not if you purchase online. Print your Pass at home and you can then drive straight through to the resort to self-park in Day parking or be assisted to an Overnight parking area by our parking crew.

I bought online but didn’t print my ticket, what do I do?
Don’t stop at the Ticket Box – you can visit the help desk at either the ATS Terminal or Visitor Information Centre to have your pass printed. This will likely be subject to wait times so it’s best to remember to print your Pass at home.

Can I just visit for dinner or night skiing?
Yes, access is free every night from 5pm to midnight and you can park in day-parking areas. You do still need a pass on your vehicle so pick one up for free at ATS or by booking online.

Why do I have to pay Resort Entry? There are a many services that are simply essential for an alpine resort to operate in winter, things like Ski Patrol, sewage treatment and snow clearing. Your Resort Entry fees go toward funding these important functions to make a snow season as you know it possible. This infographic gives a good understanding of everything your Resort Entry Fees go towards funding.
