Had the last 4 days up at cederwood (great accom by the way) and agree Sunday was great and so different to the gale force wind and rain on Sat.
Bit sad its all over to be honest, my first time back on the snow in over 15 years and loved every second up at Falls.....managed 20 days boarding so defo a hero pass for me next year.
The wife has also got the bug and our 7 year old is now linking turns after two full days in junior shred so were off to Japan in the new year.

So yeah, big thanks from us Falls Creek you have a new set of fans for life.

Had a good weekend teaching a friend how to ski up at Falls. Sunday was a great way to end the season. The effort that Falls creek put into keeping as much of the mountain open as possible was the deciding factor in me buying a hero pass for next year. good work Falls!

It was very slow after 11 today, and at 3 I was pushing with both poles to make any progress below about 10% slope..

Plenty of obstacles on all slopes.

Snow will need to be moved to make scottys ( either side of the chair) viable tomorrow.

By the end of the day the wise where down lifting to avoid a patchy and very slow Wombats

The hill needs a freeze.

Still fun ...in the morning anyway!

Good to see - looks like I am going to be skiing Main St, Scotts and Ruined Castle this weekend - might venture into the beginner terrain park as well smile
24/9/13 - 1:14pm
Still holding up well, picture of Ruined castle this morning


Scotts and Main Street still good also. The little bit of rain last night has pretty well finished off the lifted off piste

If they were charging full resort entry from opening weekend, there is no reason why they still wouldn't be.

For the umpteenth time this season on this and the other Victorian resort threads, Resort Entry charges and Ski Lift prices are not in anyway connected. Resort Entry charges are applied and collected by the local Resort Management Board, aka council/land manager (at Falls Creek - Falls Creek Resort Management Board), and the Lift Prices are applied and collected by the business that holds the lease for the ski area and own and operate the lifting, snow making, slope grooming etc infrastructure, aka a commercial enterprise (at Falls Creek - Falls Creek Ski Lifts owned by Merlin Entertainment).

Well hopefully management do everything they can to keep them open. They have done an excellent job so far! I will decided on Friday morning if it worth the drive.

Ruined and Scotts were really good on Saturday. Not many people about though. Should last till weekend.

Even if the snowcover top to bottom is suffice, the management could still decide to close those lifts on account of too few patrons about.

Towers Chair and Main Street should still be up and running

Actually the ses bbq was today, not next Saturday. But usually there is a Harvey hour on the last Saturday at the fc hotel which will be full of locals
21/9/13 - 3:26pm
That sounds like a great suggestion; thanks Curra. No point going on a ski weekend on my lonesome if I don't get out there and socialise with my fellow ski addicts.

We were suppose to leave yesterday but the snow was so beautiful that we were lucky enough to stay another night in our apartment ( Ted & Bec from mountain multiservice are amazing ). Kids had their last day in ski school & it was my sons last time in snow club which was a bit sad actually because they treat the kids amzingly there & we have a soft spot for Nozomi as since my sons first time in snow club when he was 3 she has just been so good with him & all the other kids . It was great to see some new snow yesterday & the kids were especially excited as everything looks so much prettier with that white blanket of snow we love so much . 7 and a half days skiing in sun/ wind / rain & the beautiful snow and we are all exhausted . Thanks everyone at falls creek & the kiewa valley for another amazing holiday . Now for the 1000 k trip back home - ahhh !

Of course, if you've had enough skiing by lunchtime then you must could pop up to the FC hotel in the bowl for the annual SES fundraiser BBQ.
20/9/13 - 3:51pm
Thanks Curra. I'm sure I'll have a good weekend. I am impressed with the amount of terrain that FC has managed to keep open. Cruising the blues will keep me occupied for 2 days. The purpose of the trip is to get my snow fix to hold me over until Nozawa Onsen in February smile

Have fun guys and gals.

Nice to see a bit of fresh.

I was hanging out to ski today but early cams showed poor vis so I packed up and returned to the big smoke.
20/9/13 - 1:38pm
I'll be having one of those Quesadilla's on Sunday all to myself thanks Curra!

One last hurrah for me. woohoo

Nelse lodge is great.

you certainly won't be seeing Falls at it's best, but with a bit of luck there should still be some reasonable intermediate groomers to play on.

my season is done I'm afraid so won't be able to ski with you. Hope you have a ball anyway.

tip of the (spring) day:
if wombats is not good, you can easily download on FC Express
quesadilla at Stingray (base of FC Express) is a great light lunch for 2 at $21. peroni & james squire pale ale on tap too.
snonuts (doughnuts) halfway up the stairs from FC express is a great snack too
20/9/13 - 1:22pm
I just booked accommodation, lift pass and resort entry for the final weekend. I got a great deal at Nelse Lodge and the lift passes were reasonable at $142 for the weekend.

I am looking forward to my first trip to FC even if its only half of the resort. Is anyone keen to meet for a ski? I'll be there on my own so looking for ski buddies smile
20/9/13 - 12:27pm
good deals to be had, snowing at the moment so weekend looks to be a good one. Cant wait to get up again from mid next week until the end

Just looked out the window - some more snow woohoo
But a fair wind to go with it .

Yesterday morning was beautiful waking up to a blanket of fresh snow around the village . Went for a walk around 6am . Heard two guys saying " what's this wet rubbish " I still thought it was pretty and the kids loved going out in it for a play & the compulsory snow man making. It wasn't the best day for skiing but we all made the most of it and it looked a lot prettier from the lifts with a bit of fresh snow . Hopefully the sun will come out for our last day skiing today smile

Actually Hully, not a hater at all of skiing in Oz...introduced to it by my Dad, been doing it since 1969 and have enjoyed introducing my family to it, who have subsequently skied it for many years. And have introduced many friends to it - a good number of whom have continued to ski it year in and out. And I've lived and worked in the Northeast, and at Falls and Hotham, and loved it.

It is the shortsightedness of the industry (collectively) in failing to deliver real value against competition for the disposable dollar/vacation dollar that is so frustrating. If the view was on the longer term then there would be half a chance that the ski fields in Oz would be sustainable from a business perspective - and that would be a great thing - especially in the face of constraints on snowfall. But it is forever focused on the short term, becoming even shorter with the reduction in winter trading periods. Endless gouging, endless interests all trying to squeeze more and more out of it to the point that the punter, and market, have responded with options like Japan, EU and NorthAm packages...and of course NZ. It's not just about lift ticket prices or lodge fees, but on-mountain gouging, transport cost increases to the fields, lousy service in too many cases.....sure there are responses that have been made but arguably too little and, with the consumer well exposed to other choices in terms of spending their hard-earned, too late.

No doubt about it, a great day in the snow in Australia is hard to beat, but it is unpredictable and costly to such an extent that it is struggling. My point, as it has been in other posts, is that the industry, if it is to survive, has to re-think its approach or it will go under, simple as that. And that would be a tragedy.

Done 4 out of the last 7 days....loving the spring pass, makes you go up on days like today even if its just for a couple of hours....3 hours on the slopes and back home for the school run.

Hopefully be all good Tropical...looking to get up from the 26th to Sunday 29th with the family, unfortunately back to work between now and then.


That's a great spot through the trees - and not many people go there , so that's a bonus !
