Resort Entry and Oversnow Transport
Arriving at Falls Creek can be a little bit daunting if it is your first time. This is especially true if you arrive after dark. There appear to be lights flashing all over, and people everywhere.
You will first pass through the Howmans Gap ticket gate area. You need to have your resort entry pre-purchased online at Falls Creek | Resort Entry & Pricing.
As you then drive a little further up toward the village, there are tons of resort workers at the rescue directing you where to stop, where to unload and where to park.
If your accommodation is in the village proper, you are most likely going to need oversnow transport. Check with your provider, but generally speaking, the more central the location within the village itself, the more likely you are to need it. If you are staying at Lakeside Falls Creek, then you definitely do.
So, on arrival, pull into the ATS terminal. ATS stands for Accommodation Transfer Service, and is run like a ferry terminal. You unpack your luggage from your car onto a trolley. Then you head in and check-in (if you have pre-purchased your transfer online). If there are 2 adults in the vehicle, then I recommend one of you organising the luggage and transfer tickets whilst the other heads back in to the car and takes it to park.
There will be a staff member there to direct you on available parking spaces. They will then direct a mini van to follow you and it will pick you up and take you back to the ATS.
Once all passengers and luggage are together, you can load into the ATS vehicle. You will be dropped at the door of your accommodation. The kids love the adventure of the big snow cat.
