All Ages

3 nights at just $130 per person -which covers:
Includes breakfast Sat, Sun, Mon; dinner Sat, Sun.
Kitchen can be used to prepare lunches.

There is an espresso coffee maker so bring beans, tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided
People need to bring either sheets or sleeping bags and pillowcases & towels. There are single and double duvets for all beds.

There are 4x 2 double-bed bunkrooms, 2 5-bed bunkrooms, 1x 4-bed bunkroom & 1x 2-bed bunkroom. We supply ear plugs!

People should come prepared for all conditions - it will still be cold but can also get very warm so layers are essential. Those wanting to climb to the crater should try to bring a pack they can ties skis/board to although the climb only takes about an hour and can be done in ski boots and carrying skis on shoulders! The lodge will be warm and we have a drying room for wet gear.

I am happy to lead the skiing activities Sat/Sun and a mountain bike ride on the Mon. Based on the June weekend there will be those who will want to do some walks and others who will be quite happy to occupy themselves with activities in the area. If we want to do any organised things we may need to contact the operators in advance as they may be quite busy over the weekend.
