New at Falls Creek in 2017

Alpine News - - News -

FALLS Creek has seen a large amount of pri­vate in­vest­ment at the re­sort over the sum­mer months in­clud­ing ma­jor ren­o­va­tions at iconic prop­er­ties As­tra Lodge and Elk at Falls.

Dis­abled Win­ter­sports Aus­tralia, in part­ner­ship with the YMCA has built a pur­pose built fa­cil­ity at How­mans Gap over the sum­mer months.

The state-of-the-art cen­tre has 36 beds, which will en­sure that par­tic­i­pants of all abil­i­ties can get out and chal­lenge them­selves on Vic­to­ria’s ski fields.

The devel­op­ment which will open in July was made pos­si­ble thanks to a $3.1 mil­lion An­drews La­bor Gov­ern­ment in­vest­ment and the spe­cial lodg­ings will be Aus­tralia’s first fully ac­ces­si­ble alpine ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Falls Creek are mak­ing pri­vate ski and snow­board lessons avail­able to book on­line, which will al­low for a seam­less book­ing process for guests who take up these lessons.

Ev­ery Tues­day evening dur­ing July and Au­gust the Kids Street party with Pete the Dragon will be held in the Vil­lage Bowl which is great kids fun with the re­sort’s pop­u­lar mas­cot.

The whole fam­ily is be­ing looked af­ter on the slopes at Falls with the all new ‘Par­ent Pass’. This pass will now make it even eas­ier to take lit­tle ones to the snow with the new pass en­abling par­ent num­ber two the abil­ity to pur­chase a three hour pass for $69 along with ei­ther a full day or half day lift pass. The lift passes must be pur­chased and used on the same day and this pass will al­low par­ent num­ber two some ski time for the du­ra­tion of a kids’ snow sports school pro­gram or les­son with­out buy­ing a full day pass.

There’s also new art­work among the scenery at Falls Creek with the com­mis­sion­ing of the “Big Fella” art­work piece. This piece adorns the side of a 14 me­tre tall wa­ter-set­tling tank and will be vis­i­ble to vis­i­tors as they ski past.
