Full review

Been to Falls 3 years in a row now because its great for our familiy. All standards of skiers get plenty to be happy about and our 2 kids (now 14 & 16) have gone from intermediate skiers to beginner boarders to intermediate boarders at Falls and they have always been happy.
The lift staff and the instructors all have an excellent customer service ethic (without ever becoming obsequious).
Food sold at retail outlets is expensive but because all accommodation is on the mountain you can always ski back to your own accommodation and make your own lunch.
Just like anywhere, foggy days and/or windy days make things not much fun but in 2009 the snow condition was so good that even poor visibility from fog couldn't stop us from getting out there - it just meant we had to slow down a bit.
We live in Sydney but now bypass the closer snowfields of Perisher and Thredbo to spend another 90 mins driving to Falls. I really can't recommend Falls Creek highly enough. Enjoy !
