Most slopes at Falls Creek are quite short and rather gentle. Therefore Falls is an excellent destination for beginners or families with small kids. Experts can find some nice black runs in “The...

The Ski Resort

Falls Creek is one of Australia's largest ski resorts with an area of 450 hectares and rises above Rock Valley Lake in the state of Victoria. With no less than four fun parks, it scores particularly well with freestylers. Thanks to Australia's longest beginners slope, however, ski beginners also get their money's worth.

Falls Creek is best known for its four snow parks. Young freestylers can practice at the Fox Trail Park at Lift Drover's Dream. The setting of the obstacles is adapted to children and there is also an igloo. For older freestylers who want to gain even more experience, the Panorama Park is just next door. The park also scores with its location overlooking Rocky Valley Lake. Professionals among the freestylers are best off to the Ruined Castle Advanced and Ruined Castle Expert Park at Sun Valley. While the Advanced Park offers long lines and medium to advanced obstacles, only professionals should venture into the Expert Park.
