Falls Creek ski area in Australia's Victorian state is the prettiest ski village down under. The resort is pedestrian only meaning you park your car then take oversnow transport to your lodge. When the village is under snow it is pure ski in ski out. it's a two hour drive from Albury airport and gets the most snow in Australia with an average three metres a season. The resort is very family friendly with an exceptional ski school program and beginners area with a number of magic carpets and beginner lifts. Falls Creek is consistenly voted the number one terrain park by Australian Snowboarder magazine and this year is no exception with the yellow bus setting itself up for more rails and jumps. The four terrain parks at Falls Creek are graded according to ability. Falls Creek is not known for it's pitch but it does have access to Mt McKay cat skiing for some serious off piste action. Otherwise the wide open groomed runs mix it up with ungroomed snow gum tree runs over four hundred and fifty hectares of terrain. There's 28 bars in the village and a thriving apres scene.
