Ski Tours

The possibilities for planning ski tours from Falls Creek are endless. Here are some ideas to get your planning started.

Family Starter Tours

  1. From Windy Corner take the access trail to the Nordic Bowl for some practice and skills improvement.

There are flat areas, short slopes, longer slopes and slightly steeper slopes. You are never too old or too young to learn. The kids will love it here. When everyone has had their fun practicing, roll out the morning tea picnic and fuel everyone up.

When everyone is ready to go again head out of the Nordic Bowl via the Aqueduct trail and then on to the Panorama trail. Stop for a picnic lunch at the end of the Panorama trail over looking Rocky Valley Storage. When you are ready head back to the Nordic Bowl for some more play and practice via the High Plains road access trail. When everyone has had their fill for the day ski back to Windy Corner for afternoon tea.

  1. The Ropers Aqueduct trail out across the dam wall is an interesting and attractive route with easy terrain. The return distance is about 5 km. Stop at the Nordic Bowl on the way out and the way back. Going to familiar places each time builds the children's confidence.

  1. Slightly longer is the Sun Valley loop. There is a steeper section between the bottom of Panorama and the bottom of Towers. You may have to help the children up this slope. Yet again them may beat you up. This trail not recommended when the snow is icy.
  2.  Ski out across the dam wall and along the High Plains road towards Langford gap as far as is comfortable to return.
