The Lodge offers breath taking views and plenty of activities both in the summer months (Green Season) and the winter months (White Season). Both modern and alpine architecture and furnishings. Heated by both an open (wood burning) fire, and a gas furnace which supplies ducted heat into the bedrooms, the lodge is always warm and welcoming in the cooler months

The lodge has 24 beds in 6 bedrooms and 5 heated and lockable bathrooms. Bedrooms 1 & 2 contain ensuited bathrooms with child baths. For self-catering, there is a double kitchen and large dining area. There are two large lounges: one with the crackling log fire, and the other is downstairs, with a large wall mounted TV.

Big enough for the whole extended family and also suited to small groups such as Bush Walking Clubs, Scout and Girl Guides groups and Small School Groups (for outdoor education). We welcome guests all year. The John Gardiner Ski Club is a Co-Operative Organisation, which is run by members who maintain and manage the Lodge.
