The snow must go on! Always popular with families, Falls Creek Ski Resort is planning for a COVID-Safe opening of the season over the Queen's Birthday long weekend. Mount Hotham will have Road Runner, Summit Quad and Summit Trainer lifts spinning on Saturday. It will open up more terrain just as soon as it can. Mount Buller will attract its share of day-trippers and weekend warriors but is well set up and a great option midweek. A single day adult lift ticket from late June at Mount Hotham or Falls Creek will set you back $165.
