COVID-19 Season Updates


A Thank you from Richard Phillips VP & General Manager Falls Creek   

“What a winter! We open and closed Falls Creek four times, endured long shutdowns and made it through a tough winter.  

We are grateful that we made it to our normal closing day safely. It was an amazing feat, and the accomplishments reflect all of us, from those who stayed home to help keep us safe, to the strong will of our teams to stay open.  

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate a season that was thrown so many twists and turns, and sorry to those who could not make it to Falls Creek this winter. Thank you to our community, who is as strong as our mountain and the teams who helped us through an incredibly tough winter. Our sights are set on getting back to what we love, here’s to a great summer and fantastic 2022.”

Keeping our guests, communities and employees safe
