Snow bik­ing in... FALLS CREEK

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - SNOW SPECIAL -

Nes­tled amongst the gums of the Great Di­vid­ing Range, Falls Creek (fallscreek.com.au) abounds in 450 hectares of ski­able ter­rain – and it’s also the first place in Aus­tralia to of­fer snow bik­ing. Also known as ‘ski­bob­bing’, snow bik­ing in­volves rid­ing a bike that’s at­tached to skis in­stead of wheels and al­lows you to ex­plore the slopes at se­ri­ously high speeds. For the ul­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence, book a one-hour tour with an in­struc­tor and weave your way down the 2km stretch of Wom­bats Ram­ble. Get there: A day’s drive from Mel­bourne or Sydney, Falls Creek can also be ac­cessed from Al­bury Air­port, where you can get a trans­fer with Fall­sBus (fall­sbus.com.au). Base your­self: The Al­pha Ski Lodge ( al­phask­ilo­dge.com.au) of­fers af­ford­able ski-in, ski-out ac­com­mo­da­tion, while QT Falls Creek (qtho­tel­sand re­sorts.com) makes for a luxe es­cape.
