Winter Activities

Being above the snowline and only 4km from Falls Creek, winter activities are in abundance when the weather turns chilly!

Cross country skiing

Using YMCA Falls Creek Cross Country at Windy Corner, groups can arrange to hire ski gear and schedule group lessons. This activity is a great introduction to skiing and a fantastic way to tour Falls Creek and the mighty Bogong High Plains.

As we are in partnership with the Australian Cross Country Ski team, we are able to schedule specialist ski programs for groups wishing to pursue excellence in their ski-training program. This includes access to national coaches, fitness program development and video analysis.

For more information on this visit our cross country page.

Snow play

While most of the snowfall occurs ‘up the mountain,’ Howmans Gap also gets its fair share of snow. For participants who have never seen snow, this is often a highlight of their Howmans experience.

Downhill skiing

This activity is organised with Falls Creek Resort and lets participants experience the thrill of downhill skiing.


When the Falls Creek tobogganing area is open, participants can hire toboggans from the YMCA Falls Creek Nordic Centre.
