Fantastic work....as is typically the case, the Summit is the one that tells the Falls Creek story. I really appreciate your efforts. Cheers Pete

Just finishing off a week at FC - the kids made today's snow report photos - (no,they're not Umpa Loompas). The snow was holding up in most places around the mountain, my pick of the day was Rapunzels scooting around the rocks and soft bumps.

Had Sunday and Tuesday up the hill. plenty of fun to be had with hardly anyone around, sure cover is a bit bare in places but compared to this time last year we still have more than just groomers to choose from. Fun to be had rock hopping and bush swerving on nice buttery trails.....day 35 for me 18 for the boy and other half. Will be up on the week end for our last rides....on snow. Have noticed the nice flowing single track under falls express so will be up on the pushy this summer. Tuesday

The snow was slow and wet this morning but the temp dropped for a little while when the sun came out and the snow firmed up a tad. Rain came back this arvo and now it is p!55ing down. Not looking forward to getting back out there in the morning.

Gotta agree with OzSkier, the spring skiing yesterday was great. The overnight freeze of the past couple of nights has meant the day started with a firm fast surface. Scott's skiing fantastic with great cover....all south side on piste areas that have snow making are holding really good cover and off piste is skiing really well with only a need to pick lines around uncovered bushes and creek openings. Had a couple of nice lines down Darkside on great corn. Overall, considering that there has been close enough to no natural snow since start of August, Falls is holding up really well. This week things could change quickly with high overnight temps and rain later in the week forecast.

I wonder what it will be like by the weekend. We are spending the weekend in Bright for Grand Final. Heading to Bright possibly Thursday night and coming home Monday. Wondering if it will be worth going up for a day. Hrmm decisions.

Awesome weekend of spring skiing. Snow firm in the mornings before softening up for some slushy fun later. Took lots of video footage this time 'round to remember the great season we've had. Warmups down Main St before Scotty's while it was still firm. St Elmo's was great later in the day...then headed for Rapunzel's once Elmo's starting shading over. Dark side and Sundown were great later in the day too. Think snow :)

No marketing hype or claims from me (in fact Falls marketing don't really like me much), just calling what I experienced first hand.

Quoting Hully: When did you last actually ski at Falls this season? Spent the day out today and it was nice in the morning and very slow by midday....no overnight freeze for a couple of days. Summit just about done. Village was closed by patrol today and summit on it's last legs. Skied alright on sweep, but sure had to pick a line The person above said they had a "great time" same week last year. As I said, things are better than same time last year. You have made some major assumptions about their expectations re flights, potential overseas skiing, wait till next season. They may well be somebody who does one day a year at low cost (maybe from local area) and clearly was happy with what they had last year.
Relax Hully. Skied it last on Saturday. Haven't been out since but may head out tomorrow if the weather lifts. No idea what their expectations are - just calling it as it is (sans the marketing hype and claims).

Quoting currawong: i didn't ski on the weekend, for reasons not related to conditions. Others who stayed at the lodge had a good time, especially the mornings. Corn was good for those who didn't just stay on groomers
I wouldn't even say it was corn off piste. Was pure slush....which in my opinion is much better. Think snow :)

From what I remember of last year ... Summit closed during the last week and wombat's ramble turned to mud in a couple of the places on about Wednesday of the last week so looking like it's going to be about the same as last year for anyone heading up for last week of the season / first week of Vic school holidays

Quoting BillyKidd: Well, let's be realistic. Looking up at the Summit today the place is patchy as all get out. You can still ski it but you are looking out for rocks and patches. So too with Skyline and the Village run. A little snowmaking on Thursday night but not a lot. Gully is closed. Eagle moves you across zero snow until the top. Scotty's, Ruined Castle and Sun Valley/Fosters are reasonably skiable in the morning (get out by 8:30) until about 11:30 - 12:00 when you are skiing in very slushy, slow stuff. Towers, Lakeside ditto. Upshot - passable but extremely limited Spring skiing. One good rain event or on-going warm weather will kill it. XC grooming has ended. Certainly very few people - but to be fair - for a reason, the season is effectively over. Half day skiing out back is OK but I don't think now worth the drive/flight effort and cost to do it. Leave it until next year or save your dollars and head OS for the northern winter.

Had a surprisingly good weekend at Falls. Weather was great with bugger all crowds. Nice slushy bumps down St Elmo's. Summit has some nice slush bumps with some obstacles but still fun and challenging. Scotty's was fantastic in the mornings. My favourite warm up area, Lakeside, was starting to get a bit thin at the top of where it opens up and becomes steeper. Think snow :)
