Ski Lift Update 24th June

Falls Creek Ski Lifts Announcement

Falls Creek Ski Lifts will delay the opening of the ski lifts for the 2020 snow season until 6 July (conditions permitting) due to challenging early-season conditions.

The delay is to ensure that Hotham and Falls Creek can open enough terrain to provide a safe experience in accordance with the COVID-19 Safe Operating Plan. Vail Resorts is offering full refunds on all lift, lesson and rental purchases that have been made for Hotham and Falls Creek for the period 24 June – 5 July.

Guests that have booked lift passes, snow sport lessons or rentals for these dates will receive an email confirmation regarding their refund.

Vail Resorts will keep the Epic Australia Pass on sale until 5 July and will also allow guests until this extended date to request a refund at 2020 Epic Australia Pass, 2019-20 Epic Pass and 2019-20 Epic Military Pass holders will be advised shortly of the timing and process for pass access reservations for the period 6 to 12 July.

The good news is that historically, July, August, September and October have much greater snowfall, so we just need to wait a little longer for mother nature to do her thing.
