1 June: 2019 snow season bookings now open for non-members.

Members: there's currently a problem with booking children - you will be incorrectly charged the non-member child rate.
Our supplier is working on this currently. In the meantime we will refund the overcharge when we see your booking.

Half price kids
 for the second week of the October hols (6-10 Oct). July holidays are sold out, 1st week of Oct hols selling fast. Plenty of room in the second week of October holidays as at 1 June.

Van weekends - all inclusive transport, food and accommodation for just $164 (members) or $214 (non-members). 26-28 July, 9-11 August, 23-25 August. More will be scheduled later in the season.

Families weekends - 12-14 Jul, 2-4 Aug, 30 Aug-1 Sep, 13-15 Sep, and 4-6 Oct are 'family friendly' weekends. If you want to make sure there'll be kids at the lodge for your kids to hang out with, those are the weekends to book.

R18 weekends - we are trialling a couple of adults-only, kid free weekends on 9-11 Aug and 6-8 Sep. Book these weekends for a kid free lodge and let us know what you think of this idea.
