Venue Hire Cost

Snowline Lodge $1,000 night between October 31st and April 30th and/or Day Lodge $1,000 night. In Summer, the Day Lodge can only be booked together with Snowline. You will be met and shown the ropes if needed.

In winter, Snowline Lodge may be booked for a Saturday night (we suggest booking well in advance if you want an exclusive booking, as weekends are popular). You can also book smaller groups mid week. The cost of winter bookings is by bed nights (you can pay for empty beds in your rooms at the child rate so you get rooms with only your group in them). 

You can book the classroom area of the Day Lodge mid-week for smaller parties (we can close off half of the Day Lodge), but as there will be day visitors and ski holiday guests, so smaller parties won’t get exclusive use of Snowline lodge for accommodation.
During the week and on Sunday, hire is priced on a per night, per guest basis.

Forest Lodge bookings are managed separately. Visit https://www.forestlodge.info
