What about the blog?

We have retired the blog as a separate way of communicating with members. Old news can still be be found at

Lodge Manager extending!

The Committee is delighted that our Lodge Manager, Jess McAllister has accepted the offer to extend her tenure through to the end of the 2024 snow season.

Following their first season in 2022, Jess, Craig, Lucy, Hamish and Gus have become a terrific (and fun) part of the AAC Falls Creek family.

Thanks for making our stays great, and we all look forward to seeing you for the rest of 2023 and again in 2024 for your third season.

Annual Subscription Invoices - improved security

This year the subs invoices are being sent out using the booking system. This means that you can pay using the eway secure payment gateway that is used for booking payments. This much more secure than telling the club your credit/debit card details via email or phone.

Alternatively you can pay by EFT but you have to log into the booking system to see the account details. Those details were removed from booking invoices some time ago. Now they will no longer appear on the subscription invoice.This avoids the increasing risk where hackers sometimes intercept emails and alter the account details to steal the money you transfer. If paying subs by EFT please use your member number as the payment reference.

You can log on to the booking system and go to menu Members/Pay Outstanding Subs, or follow the link on the invoice email. When following links, always check that the address it actually takes you to looks correct in the browser address bar (in this case and is marked as secure. Never pay or provide sensitive information if a site does not look right.

As always, payment is due by 31 January. If you do not receive an invoice or have any difficulties with the payent system, contact Proacct.

Sunny September

The snow gods have been kind to us so far this year but there has not been a lot of sunshine. September can be lovely skiing. There is still usually a good depth of snow, the days are longer and the sun shines on many days. It's a perfect time for a relaxed stay, and ideal if you are introducing beginners to the snow.

Grand Final weekend is a great atmosphere on the mountain, especially at the FC Hotel next door.

Don't forget that members can grab a cheeky midweek stay (5 nights) for just $234 in off-peak, even less from 22 Sept.

Busy weekends

July has seen the resort car parks filling up on weekends and entry refused to those who have not planned ahead. This could happen on other busy days.

Holders of resort entry season passes will be allowed entry, as will anyone with pre-purchased resort entry or proof of booked accommodation. So be prepared. Buy your entry permit ahead of time (which is cheaper anyway) or be ready to show your booking confirmation if requested.

Christmas in July

July 24 is the night for a little christmas merriness.

We put up some decorations, play some carols and brew up some glühwein. The rest is up to you. If you are coming to the lodge that week, bring some yuletide fare and festive spirit and enjoy our Christmas in July.

Welcome to winter 2023

STOP PRESS: From Friday 16th Towers and Mouse Trap will be open for skiing/boarding and Halleys for access

Season 2023 kicked off on 10th June with a pretty dusting in the resort and a full lodge of members and guests to celebrate. 



This year AACFC hosted the Mountain Muister which was a great opportunity to mingle with members of other clubs.

The dusting may have melted away but since the weekend we've seen some more serious snow and more predicted for Sunday into next week.

Tuesday morning

Keep an eye on the booking system for vacancies as the season unfolds. There are plenty of opportunities in June and still a few in July and August.

 Have a great winter 2023, on the slopes and in the lodge

 Thanks to Hugh and Lynn for pictures and reports from the weekend
