Falls Creek Overview

 Notable Ski Runs

The longest possible descent in Falls Creek is 3km long.


Falls Creek's generally south-facing slopes hold onto the snow and often offers powder skiing.

The ski area includes Sun Valley, The Maze and Village Bowl. There are cornices, steeps and moguls - for experts - around the sides of the Bowl and easier skiing to and at the base. The best of the off-piste can be accessed from The Maze, with lines among the gum trees!

There are a variety of pistes to suit all levels of skier ability, from Beginner to Expert.
