We've Kicked Off Snowmaking with NEW $1.88 Million Upgrades!
The temperatures have dropped to minus 3.3 and our mountain
team have started making snow. We are snow excited we may even catch snowflakes
under the snow guns with our tongue…maybe.
To celebrate, we thought we’d share some news, well, we were
going to tell you last winter, but COVID kind of ruined the party. Over the
past 2 years we have invested a whopping $1.88 million in snowmaking and snow
grooming machines - it’s the largest snowmaking investment in 10 years at Falls

Street and at the base of Drovers. Our mountain team will sigh if we don’t use

Guns firing out tons of snow.
In addition to this, we have a PistenBully 400 Winch and a
PistenBully 400 Park grooming machine joining the team. They’re not really
bullies, they’re actually pretty cool Kats. For Falls Creek guests, this means
even more flawless groomed runs to enjoy than ever before throughout the
This huge investment helps us get snow on the ground quicker
across our perfect family friendly terrain, ensuring the best possible snow
conditions all season long! So, it’s kind of a big deal! Get up here and enjoy
your snow holiday in Falls Creek this winter.
Our season opening is Saturday 12 June, and we cannot wait
to get back to skiing and boarding. Hearing the whirling sound of the snow guns
and watching white hit the ground sure has the village buzzing. Falls Creek Slope Operations Manager Danny
Lucas said; “It’s really great to see the improvement this investment has made
on the snowmaking system here in Falls Creek. With only 4 weeks to go before
opening day, we will be making snow at every opportunity.”
