Great news for Australian skiers and boarders: Falls Creek will open for skiing and boarding tomorrow, Friday, June 16, 2023. The resort was slated to open last Saturday, June 10, 2023, but could not operate any ski lifts due to lack of snow. Since the King’s Birthday Long Weekend, 36cm (14 inches) of snow has fallen, enabling the Victorian ski resort to finally start spinning some of its lifts.

Halley’s Comet Quad Chair, Towers Quad Chair, and Mouse Trap Carpet will give skiers and boarders access to Main Street, Highway 83, Lower Nastar, and Mouse Trap runs.

“The snowstorms over the past week delivered a whopping 36cm of fresh snow and we have heaps more on the way with up to 45cm due to hit from Sunday. We got a nice top up throughout the day yesterday as our team got to work preparing the mountain.”

– Richard Phillips, VP + GM Falls Creek Ski Lifts

Private lessons will commence on Friday for those wanting to try skiing and boarding for the first time, and all other Snowsports lesson options will be available from the weekend. Lessons should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.

“We have Australia’s most beginner-friendly terrain, coupled with amazing après-ski options and a ski-in, ski-out village – it’s just beautiful here right now. We can’t wait to share the mountain with skiers and snowboarders again.”
