Snow Club (3-6 years)

Falls Creek Kids on skis

Getting your kids comfortable with snow in their early years is the key to building confident skiers and snowboarders down the track.

The Snowclub Program is dedicated to laying the solid foundations of snow fitness and introducing kids to their first skiing experience. It is a great platform to progress their skills and love of skiing.  Snowclub caters for children from 3-6 years of age with professional caring staff and a fun filled atmosphere.

Located in the special children’s terrain park next to Cloud 9, your kids will enjoy a day of tuition, fun, games, surprise visits from Pete the Snow Dragon as well as a fully catered lunch (for full day & half day programs) and snacks.

Ride Tribe (13-17 years)

Falls Creek Bluebird Morning

Ride Tribe is designed for 13-17 year olds at an intermediate ski or snowboard level who are keen to progress and rip it up with others of a similar age and ability. It caters to teenagers that are already comfortable on blue terrain and above and want to improve their skiing and riding skills all over the mountain and in the terrain park.

It is a full day session with an expert ski or snowboard instructor who will have them challenging themselves in no time. A great day of progression, laughter and loads of high fives!

Snow Tube Park

Grab your crew and get ready to slip and slide down the purpose-built snowtube park, complete with carved snow walls and banked corner finish. The Tube Park takes pride of place in the Village Bowl and features its own magic carpet surface lift to take sliders and their tubes back to the top.

The Tube Park is built by our groomers as soon as natural snow conditions allow. From then the park is open daily from 2pm to 6pm so long as weather and conditions permit. Snow tubing costs $15 for a ½ hour session and participants must be 90cm tall and a minimum of 5 years old.

Scenic Chairlift Rides

Gully Chair

It may be a slow ride but the Gully Chair is a Falls Creek workhorse that brings countless day trip visitors from the Gully Car Park up to the Village Bowl each season. Visitors can ride the Gully Chair for a FREE return trip (provided they don't have any luggage with them) and you can ride it without skis or a board.

Halleys Comet

Halleys Comet is a two-way express from the village all the way to Cloud 9 Restaurant and the ski fields above. It's a great ride for a scenic look across Falls Creek and the Alpine National Park. Cloud 9 is a great dining experience so it's a great opportunity to have a mile high lunch at one of the newest restaurants around.
