The Snow Season
Falls Creek is a unique snow village that is closed to all traffic during the snow season - it has a great, friendly vibe and is a perfect hang out for families and groups of friends. It is truly a Ski in ski out village and perfectly beautiful to walk around - especially at night when you head out to find one of the many excellent restaurants and bars.
You don't have to go too far to find great places - there are wonderful restaurants near by.
Falls Creek boasts 65 kilometres of free cross-country trails, downhill skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, and terrain parks with some of the best rails and jumps around.

When you arrive you will be greeted by the Falls Creek Staff - they will direct you to unload your bags at the Oversnow Transport Centre - then you will park your car - they will follow you to give you a lift back.
Then when you are back at the Oversnow Transport Centre you can load up your gear and get a lift up to the accommodation (best to buy these tickers ahead of time too.
Everything is made easy by the super friendly staff.
