Opening Weekend 2006
Opening Weekend is shaping up as another exciting (and possibly white) holiday at Falls Creek.
Victoria's largest alpine resort has already received several pre-winter snowfalls and the Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting another for this weekend. Long range forecaster John Moore offers a particularly positive prediction of more than 35cm falling next week. We are all waiting eagerly...
But snow or no snow, there will still be plenty happening around the resort. more

The third annual Film Fest @ Falls will take place in Falls Creek throughout Opening Weekend with more than 40 films to screen throughout the three days and entrants vying for more than $33,000 in prizes.

Decisions of the 45th International Ski Congress in Vilamoura (POR)
Convening in Vilamoura (POR), the 45th International Ski Congress made the following important decisions:
Decisions directly related to the ski sports
Acceptance of Ladies Ski Jumping into the program of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. Pending approval by the organizer, an individual event on the normal hill could be included as soon as at the 2009 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec (CZE) and a team event as of the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oslo (NOR). The Congress also decided to submit a proposal to the International Olympic Committee to include a Ladies Ski Jumping event in the program of the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver (CAN) in 2010.
Inclusion of a Nordic Combined Mass Start competition into the program of the FIS Nordic World Championships. Pending approval by the organizer, the event could be introduced as early as at the 2009 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec (CZE).
Increase of the maximum age for athletes at the Junior World Ski Championships in Ski Jumping from 18 to 20.
Rejection of an introduction of FIS World Championships in Long Distance Cross-Country Skiing. As an alternative, the Congress asked the Cross-Country Committee to investigate the options for increasing the length of the longest Cross-Country Skiing race on the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships program.
Adoption of detailed criteria for FIS disciplines and events, including the possibility of exclusion of a discipline from FIS when it is no longer practiced in at least twelve National Ski Associations on at least two continents. Moreover, the Congress decided that the status of FIS World Championships and FIS Junior World Championships in all disciplines may only be afforded when there are a minimum of eight (8) nations participating/represented in a competition.
Alpine Skiing Nations Team Event
The nations team event was introduced at the 2005 FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in Bormio (ITA) and only the best nations are eligible to compete in the event. The competition consists of a super-G and a one-run slalom with four of the six entered athletes, two men and two ladies, participating in each race. At the end, the athletes rankings in their respective group results are added up to determine the overall ranking of each nation.
In Bormio, nine nations challenged for the first edition of the competition where Germany claimed a surprise triumph ahead of Austria. In the second edition at the FIS World Cup finals in Åre (SWE), the best eight teams were at start. For next season, two nations team events are planned: at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in Åre, and at the FIS World Cup finals in Lenzerheide (SUI).
