Snow trip checklist

Planning a snow holiday can seem like a daunting task. To help you through this process we've put together this check list to ensure you're all set for your Falls Creek holiday.

 

When should you visit?

The official snow season at Falls Creek is from Queen's Birthday Weekend on June 8th through until October 6th.

To help you plan when you'd like to visit Falls Creek we've put together the below chart, showing the natural snowdepth from the 2018 season vs 2017 vs the long term average.

Falls Creek Snow Depth Graph

The season at Falls Creek is typically defined by three key periods. Early season, peak season and late season. The early season in June is when conditions can be less reliable. We rely on Mother Nature coming to the party with cold temperatures and snowfall. If Mother Nature chooses to be stubborn our snow making team will work to make snow so that guests can still enjoy the slopes. Due to the unpredictable nature of June snow it is a great time to get discounts on lift tickets & accommodation.

Where should you stay?

There is a wide range of accommodation options to choose from. You can stay in the Fall Creek village or  if you prefer off-mountain, there are plenty of places nearby in Mount Beauty and the Bogong Village. We recommend getting in touch with our team at the Falls Creek reservation centre to help you start planning where to stay on your snow adventure.
