Falls Creek, Victoria’s largest alpine resort, has opened one of its key chairlifts to provide additional intermediate to advanced snow-covered terrain.
As the second week of the school holidays is one of the busiest of the alpine resort’s winter season a concerted effort was made by the snowmaking teams to provide snow on Ruined Castle.
It is an outstanding result, within a few days, which will allow additional skiing and boarding for the influx of school-aged snow enthusiasts.
There is a good chance of snow overnight and whilst the temperatures permit the snow guns will continue to produce even more snow.
Currently there is are eight lifts operating including the just-opened Ruined Castle Chairlift, Towers Chairlift, Falls Creek Express Chairlift, Drovers Chairlift plus numerous beginner-friendly lifts such as Petes Train for three to five year olds.
Eagle and Gully chairlifts are also turning to provide access to Sun Valley and Village Bowl respectively.
There’s an average cover in the snowmaking areas of 66cms which includes the iconic 2.2km Wombats Ramble and the very popular runs alongside the Towers Chairlift, Highway 87 and Main Street.
