Broken River Lodge offers shared bunk-style accommodation and bathroom facilities, a modern kitchen, communal living area and drying rooms.

White Star Chalet is our smallest lodge offering no-frills self catered accommodation. It is the first building the Club constructed in the ski area, from materials carried up the mountain on members' backs. Both White Star and Broken River Lodges are located on the bush-line, a 10 minute walk to the first ski tow.

You will enjoy the conviviality and atmosphere of our oldest and dearest lodges, making friends quickly in the common room as you experience a traditional communal alpine lifestyle. Electric heating and hot showers will keep you in touch with the 21st century!

Property Facilities

The self-catered nightly rate includes bed and use of the kitchen and other facilities. It is necessary for you to bring your own dinner and breakfast food or, for a cost equal to the difference in accommodation rates, meals can be provided in Lyndon Lodge.

You will be rostered on one light duty each day. Duties will not cut into your skiing time, and are a great way to get to know your fellow guests.

Remember to bring your sleeping bag and towel!
