    Hi guys. I'm wondering if there are any snow tour operators offering packaged bus transfer + accommodation + lift pass + ski hire operating from Melbourne to Falls Creek?

    Comparable operators in Sydney that I'm talking about are OzSnow and SkiKaos who offer bus packages to Thredbo (or Perisher.)

    SkiKaos offers a trip to Falls once a year from Sydney and Melbourne, but it'd be nice if there are other choices to compare with.

    Thank you.

    Do you need an operator?

    We always put our own tour to falls together ourselves. Book everything by the inter-web-thingamy-jiggy!

    We always fly into melbourne and stay at batman n Collins as it is across the road from spencer street(ie bus from airport and bus up to falls). Room booked via falls website. Ski hire and tickets from shop next door to where we stay. Nb no free plugs here!

    It is pretty easy. If you have other questions, ask the forum

    Thing is none of my friends from Sydney wants to go to Falls with me. Transport to/from Sydney/Albury isn't a problem, but accommodation will cost too much for me to stay alone -- and it won't be fun. Being with a tour group I can make some new friends within the group and board/ski together.

    Anyway, a couple of friends are moving Mansfield for work next month so I guess Mt Buller will be the VIC choice for this season and leave Falls for later.

    On FB, Hotham said they're offering a $399 season pass for unlimited bus rides to Hoth and FC from/to Mebourne. The FB link didn't work for me though. Maybe keep any eye out for it in case it suits anyone here.
