    I'm booked in for late August. Several places seem to have moved their Spring pricing back a week. So the last week of August is far cheaper.

    Let's see if we get a season...

    Falls Creek has been busy this summer - been up there twice recently - cyclists galore and runners and walkers and campers too.

    Looking lovely looking out towards Falls from Nelse.



    You can see Hotham & Mt Loch in the background behind Falls above.

    Funny they never lifted down into that valley below the dam. I've skied it heaps, always well covered.

    Always enjoyed that, as well as the sections between Wombats Ramble and the dam.

    Expensive to build a tunnel for the road (a la Hotham) which was there first?
    Have booked for last week of August but will take any opportunity to get there before that. Doesn't look like a Japan trip is on the cards any time soon.

    Looking at the maps I don't think that valley is included in the resort boundaries which might have presented a problem.
