SNOWBOARD FEATURE – FALLS CREEK
Falls Creek is a beginner & intermediate friendly snowboarding spot, with almost 80% of the resort dedicated to amateur snowboarders. The terrain is great for honing your skills before you head to more advanced mountains, however expert riders will also find a selection of steep runs off the Ruined Castle chairlift which also gives access to some open sections and a route down to the more advanced terrain parks on Sun Valley.
Because Australia has notoriously fickle snow conditions, early in the season the folks at Fall’s Creek create their own snow by using the water from the nearby Rocky Valley Lake.
2016 snow season kicks off this weekend, and as far as snowfall is concerned, with the massive low that has brought torrential rainfall and strong winds to the entire east coast this week, it’s not likely the snow which is forecast to fall during this week, is going to last out until the weekend.
