Andrew & Myra reappointed

The committee is very pleased to announce that Andrew & Myra Rist have been successful in applying for the new lodge manager contract.

With the growing vibrancy of green season at Falls Creek, Andrew & Myra intend to live at the lodge in summer as well. Andrew can give you tips on mountain bike trails, watersports, bushwalks and pizza making at the community wood-fired oven.

Peaks Challenge March 2017 - get in quick

The Peaks Challenge (formerly 3 Peaks) cycling event is big. Hundreds of cyclists stay at Falls Creek before and after the grueling circuit ride that takes them down the mountain, across Tawonga Gap, over Mt Hotham, down to Omeo and back up to Falls.

Falls Creek Resort Management encourages all lodges to make beds available for this event.

In 2015 & 2016 the club worked with Falls Creek Central Reservations to enable competitors to become Summer Associates and stay at the lodge for the weekend. It was very successful and we will do the same again. As well as contributing to the development of green season, this event bought a healthy injection of summer revenue to the club.

We expect that all rooms will be booked well before the event.

So if you or your friends and family are intending on coming to the lodge for that weekend, BOOK NOW

Special arrangements for Peaks Challenge weekend

  • Bookings are for 3 nights starting Friday 10 March
  • Linen is provided
  • If you book through the club, costs are Members $210, AAC $240, Guests $270
  • There is no discount for children
  • Bookings through Central Reservations will attract a higher fee.
  • Bookings for members are open immediately. Beds will soon be made available guests through Central Reservations.
  • The games room and TV rooms will not be available - they are reserved for bike storage

Summer specials

The committee understands that for many members, the $300 minimum fee in summer is a deterrent. While we can't get rid of it all together (getting the lodge up and running does cost a bit), we are continuing the trial of selected weekends/holiday periods having no minimum fee.

For this summer, you can stay without fear of minimum fee on

  • Ignition Mountain Bike weekend - 18-20 November
  • Christmas/New Year week
  • Easter

The committee hope to be able to announce one or more extra times for 2017, probably to coincide with mountain bike shuttles.

  • Shuttles to take you up to the top of the trails
  • Organised backcountry rides all the way down to Mt Beauty with a shuttle return
  • Skills sessions
  • Demo Specialized bikes

  • $130 for both days (single day tickets too but they don't include everything)

Blue Dirt Mountain Bike Shuttles

Mountain bike shuttles operate at Falls Creek roughly every second weekend from late November to late April. Shuttles take you up to the Summit, or to the Blue Dirt is the company who run them as well as the bike cafe and bike rental in Slalom St car park.

They also run shuttles at Kinglake, Mt Buller, Bright & Mt Beauty Last year they offered a season pass which covered all these locations.

Last year a day pass for the shuttles cost $50 and the season pass was $400, or $250 for an early bird pass. A nice deal if you intend doing a lot of shuttle assisted riding

I don't think they have announced the season pass yet this year, but stay tuned.

Spring at AAC Falls

There is still over a metre of snow, especially on the south side. Spring skiing is sunny days, fast morning groomers, slush bumps and creamy off-piste corn.

There are still vacancies at the lodge, so why not take advantage of the spring conditions and spring specials and sneak in another trip before the long summer.
