Lodge Update – Winter 2019

The ski-room refit that was commenced in November last year was completed this year with a full wall of button ski racks being installed at the May work party.

This provides for 25 pairs of alpine skis which, together with the 10 snow-board “cam locks” on the adjacent wall to the right and the dedicated XC ski area to the left, should accommodate everyone’s needs.

The bike racks that we installed in November last year saw good service over the summer with several groups taking advantage of the cycling opportunities around the high plains and beyond.

Lodge Update – Summer 2019

We’ve now installed Australian designed “SteadyRacks” for bicycle storage in the drying room. The racks support the front wheel of the bike from the outside rather than hooking through the rim, so bikes with lightweight aluminium or carbon-fibre wheels are supposed without damage to rims. The racks can accommodate all standard road and hybrid bikes with 700c or 650b wheels and mountain bikes using 20 – 29 inch wheels with tyre widths up to 2.4 inches.

Also to support summer cyclists we now have a bike vice attached to the work-bench to help with any maintenance or repairs needed to keep your cycling holiday on track. This has been set up to be removable for winter to free things up for ski & snowboard waxing & tuning.

Lodge Update 1 – Winter 2018

Members and guests arriving at the Lodge this winter will notice a few changes this year!

In the drying room we now have two 2-tier clothes racks, mesh panels for gloves, hats and scarves, a new boot rack for adult ski and snowboard boots and extra shelves on the back wall for children’s boots, XC boots and helmets.  We are also trialing a dehumidifier.

In the ski room we are trialing a new type of ski rack that will accommodate different ski widths.  Simply clip your skis together using the ski brakes and hang the toe-piece of the bindings over the button, making sure that the outer ski is supported by the ski brakes.  If your ski brakes don’t lock together, use a Velcro strap to hold the skis together.  Hang your poles over the ski tips.

Lodge Update 2 – Winter 2018

We are continuing to improve the environmental performance of our lodge and the resort as a whole.

We have installed LED strip lighting in the kitchen, and replaced incandescent and halogen lights with LED throughout the lodge. The lodge lighting is now around 90% LED.  The reading lights in the bed-rooms will also be fitted with LED globes during the season.

To reduce the amount of organic waste entering landfill we have sub-divided the rubbish bin into “Organic Waste” and “Rubbish”.  There are signs inside the bin holder showing what counts as organic waste however the simple guide is that anything that was living (plant or animal matter) can go in it.

Upgraded summer recreational facilities at Falls Creek

There has been a significant investment on the mountain to offer a range of summer activities for visitors to Falls Creek. Most notable are the 40 km of new single-track mountain bike trails that wind their way (somewhat scarily in places) down the village side of the mountain as far as Howmans Gap.

For those who don’t like riding uphill, there is now a shuttle service that takes riders back to the tops of the trails once they finish their descents.  This service runs every weekend until the end of April 

Bikes can be hired from Milch Cafe and from the Slalom Day Car Park.
