The Craigieburn community having fun.

Join the CV family

Club fields like Craigieburn Valley exist because of our dedicated, long-term members. People like you, who just love the good times and the good feels that come from hanging out in the mountains with likeminded folk.

We love new members! Every year our lifers are joined by a fresh crew of keen skiers and boarders, and that’s what keeps life interesting here.

Everybody can commit at different levels, and we totally get that. We have three levels of membership, so simply choose what works for you.

And in return, you’ll enjoy heavily discounted lift tickets and accommodation, and a bevy of new friends for life.  

Apply here to become a member.
