ALPINE TOURING PROGRAM

Take the road less travelled free of the lifts and resort bustle to find yourself-alone on the perfect slope through our Alpine Touring Program.

WHAT IS ALPINE TOURING?

Alpine Touring is a combination of cross-country and downhill skiing and designed to give you a sense of achievement with the fondness of knowing that this year’s holiday path was unexplored by most of the skiers on mountain. Experience making your signature on untouched terrain that lies nestled on the edge of our lifted alpine area.

We use the latest Volkl alpine touring skis with purpose-built Marker alpine touring bindings to ensure ease when walking up hills and sliding down. We also provide special climbing skins which you can fit to the base of your skis to walk uphill. When you want to go downhill, you can set the bindings in a fixed heel position, more like normal alpine bindings, and ski making normal downhill turns.

Our expert instructors will not only teach you how to use alpine touring skis, skins and bindings, but they are also the ultimate guides to Falls Creek’s side-country; they know all the best un-lifted terrain, and will help you find fresh tracks, hidden powder pockets and the most enjoyable slopes to ski in any given conditions.

Join our program and explore our un-lifted terrain with endless untracked runs just waiting to be discovered.
