big yellow taxi...

not a Joni Mitchell song but a new service at Falls creek. Sounds like a great alternative if you don't want to stagger back up the hill after a big night out

The Snowcab can seat up to three passengers at a time and charges a flat rate of $10 per person to anywhere within Falls Creek village.
The snowcab service can be hailed or booked through the Accommodation Transfer Service on 5758 1203.

There is also an option for bigger groups to hire a Husky for village transport. Single trips in a heated Husky vehicle can be pre-booked for a flat rate of $65 per trip (conditions apply).

rail jam

The weather might have been less than perfect, but a rail jam in the bowl on Saturday afternoon got some of the kids in the lodge raring to go

Here's Natasha showing how it's done

Later the snow started in earnest and we woke on Sunday to 20cm of fresh dry snow. A pity that many had to leave in the morning, but a few managed to get out and enjoy the good stuff.

If you've got some pictures or stories from your stay at the lodge or enjoying the snow elsewhere, why not send them to us to share here?

call that a snowball?

this is a snowball

a mixed week weatherwise

The second week of the Victorian & NSW holidays has seen a happy lodge but a great variety of weather. Sunday and Monday were perfect snow under blue skies.

Unfortunately the wind and rain, and a bit of snow, set in on Monday night.

Andrew was called on to check the dish again

The sun came out for Thursday morning and most people made the most of it before the rain returned.

Then returned to quieter? pursuits

the great AAC bake-off

Tuesday was wet and miserable but that was an excuse for fun of another kind: Myra issued a challenge to bake the ultimate cake.

Natasha & Kristo accepted the challenge and set to wok with cook books, shopping lists and mixing bowls. After much effort and anguish the contestants presented their masterpieces.

The judges were ruthless
But they were knocked out by Natasha's Victoria sponge
And then everyone joined in and scoffed the lot

Thanks everyone for a very entertaining ( and yummy) afternoon

holiday fun

The first week of the holidays started with a generous snowfall followed by a week of sunshine. All lifts were running by the end of the week. Lots of fun for everyone.
