Falls Creek - the Perfect Choice! 

Falls Creek is Australia's only true ski-in ski-out Alpine Village and is Victoria's largest Alpine playground with over 450 hectares of terrain and more than 92 runs, which suit abilities ranging from beginner to advanced. You'll find us in the Victorian Alps and arriving here is hassle free. 
 

Book with Confidence

With our flexible cancellation and change policy, you can book your school snow trip with confidence.
 

Reliable Snow

Falls Creek records, on average, the highest natural snow falls in Victoria, which when backed by our extensive state of the art snowmaking system means that you will ski earlier and for longer this season.
 

You can now submit a school group booking request for the 2022 season by completing the form here.

To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend booking as early as possible to secure your preferred dates as peak times will sell out in 2022.

2022 Important Updates

In the event that the resorts need to manage capacity to allow for physical distancing, Falls Creek Ski Lifts may make amendments to the 2022 groups offering. Your groups coordinator will advise of any such changes.

Please note: School Group Rates will not be available for the period 25 June through 10 July 2022. 

Free Teacher Bundle

Primary school groups receive one free package for a teacher or adult to every five paying students and Secondary school groups receive one free teacher package to every eight paying students.

The lift, lesson and rental package inclusions will mirror whatever has been purchased for the students. Additional attending teachers or adults as part of the school group can take advantage of great discounted prices (see group pricing rates), however, the number of adults must not exceed 50% of the total number of students.

School Group Class Sizes & Composition

We require a minimum of 20 students for a school group booking.

Class groupings will be determined during your first lesson.
