Big open­ing weekend

Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

FALLS Creek opened its first lift of the 2013 sea­son for ski­ing and snow­board­ing on June 16.

Falls Creek Ski Lift gen­eral man­ager Fran­cis Jack­son said the snow­falls across the weekend along with the in­dus­tri­ous snow­mak­ing ef­forts by the team made the run open­ing pos­si­ble and it was won­der­ful see­ing guests en­joy some snows­ports fun.

The Mouse Trap Magic Car­pet opened from 10am – 2pm on Sun­day for be­gin­ner ski­ing and snow­board­ing and guests were pro­vided with free trans­port by the Falls Creek Re­sort Man­age­ment Board to the top of the hill at Cloud 9.

From there they en­joyed first turns, group or pri­vate ski lessons, plus cof­fee or lunch at Cloud 9 restau­rant.

Kids took part in a heap of fun ac­tiv­i­ties at the Re­nault Kids Club with a jump­ing cas­tle, face paint­ing and games, in­door and out on the snow, as well as three-legged races, Snocce (snow bocce) and garbage bag races planned.

Fol­low­ing their ex­cit­ing day in the snow, kids watched a movie down at QT Ho­tel in the heart of the vil­lage.

SNOW EX­CUSE NOT TO VISIT: Falls Creek ski in­struc­tor No­zomi Haba was rapt to see the re­sort open for busi­ness ear­lier this month and is giv­ing a big wave out to ev­ery­one want­ing to head to the alpine re­sort for a fun time at the snow this sea­son.

DOWN­HILL IS FUN: Snow en­thu­si­asts Bri­enna and Colby took to the Mouse Trap run on June 16.
