Lost & Found Box

New for Season 2023 is a Drying Room Lost & Found Box, located directly under the entry stairs as you walk in the front door. If you've lost any items from the Drying Room like a pair of gloves, a beanie or those pesky socks that always seem to go missing, make sure you check the Lost & Found box.

A reminder, please don't leave things in the Drying Room after your stay. Please always take your possessions home with you, or if you have a Locker, put them in there. Anything found to be lying around the Drying Room for an extended period of time will be placed in the Lost & Found box, in order to keep the Drying Room as clutter free as possible.

Working Bee 2023

With the Road closure meaning nobody had been in the Lodge since the end of Ski Season 2022, this year's Working Bee was essential to get the Lodge looking spic n span for season 2023. 

As well as the usual cleaning of rooms, kitchen, windows, ski room, and the replensihment of our firewood supply, a new BBQ was installed and the Spa equipment also had a complete once-over. A huge thanks to Jess our Lodge Manager for keeping the crew fed!

The Lodge is now ready for another Winter season and if promising recent snow falls are anything to go by, who knows we might even see some runs open for Opening Weekend. Fingers crossed for another awesome Ski Season this year!

Here's a short collection of some happy snaps from the working bee weekend, see if you can spot anyone you know!

End of special COVID provisions

Victoria's pandemic regulations have ended and the committee has also ended special Covid provisions at the Lodge. There are no mandatory requirements for members or guests who contract Covid or become close contacts. Special Covid cancellation provisions have also ended.

If you become ill while at the Lodge, please consider the well-being of your fellow guests and restrict your movements in common areas such as the kitchen and dining areas. Also consider wearing a mask if you are sick.

In Green Season the Lodge Managers are not always on the mountain, If you become seriously ill you will need to seek medical advice or call an ambulance.

In the unlikely even that pandemic regulations are reintroduced, the Club may need to alter Lodge operations again.

Registering Family Members in the booking system

Family Members

Immediate family of members can be booked in from 8 March instead of waiting for 15 Match when guest bookings open. Until now you have needed to communicate with the booking officer, through phone or email or notes in your online booking. You can now arrange for your non-member spouse and children to be registered in the system so that they will be recognised and given the Family booking priority. Having family members registered in the system will also make it quicker to book them in future as their details are remembered. To register a family member, please email the secretary with

  • Member nominating them as family
  • Relationship to the member
  • First Name
  • Surname
  • Preferred Name (optional)
  • email address (optional, if not the same as the member's)
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth

When making bookings you can still use the notes field to tell the booking officer about intentions to add famiy and guests when their bookings open.

Opening of Bookings 2023

It's almost time to book your winter stays. 

Despite some catastrophising in the media and socials, the landslide works are on schedule to have at least one lane open by March. We expect that there could be a traffic light control for a single lane over winter. This happens from time to time in other ski seasons and normally only causes moderate delays.

Members can now register their immediate family (spouse and children) in the booking system to make it easier to book them in, especially during the Family prioritry booking period from 8-14 March. See Registering Family Members in the booking system for more information.

There are no major changes in the booking system this year but here are some timely reminders of changes that have been made of the last few years

  • The Eway secure online payment facility that is integrated with the online booking system the most secure way of paying for your bookings. Other payment methods are available but are not recommended
  • The waitlisting and exclusive single occupancy trials continue unchanged
  • Prompt payment for bookings is expected. The Booking Officer will cancel bookings not paid for in the appropriate time. This is within 7 days for normal bookings and 1 day for approved waitlist requests.
  • Continental breakfasts will be provided on peak season Sundays, not cooked breakfasts 

The Ski Lodge Details tab in the booking system and the Book tab on the club website cover most of the information you to make a booking and prepare for your stay. The email that is sent 7 days prior to your stay has important information about your stay, including the door code. Please check these resources to see if they answer your questions before contacting the booking officer.


2022 Club Race

With no races in 2020 or 2021 due to COVID, it was such a relief to hold our Club Race on Saturday 6th August. Pity the weather didn't play its part, but at least the race went ahead!

Our Race Captain, John Cameron, worked hard with the Mountain staff to get a race course set on Father Fosters. The conditions were far from ideal due to the heavy rain that had fallen for three straight days prior to the race, and on the morning of the race we were greeted with 15cm of fresh snow when we looked out our window! The base of soft, wet snow with the top layer of fresh snow made for very challenging conditions to say the least! It was hard enough getting to the race course, let alone going down it! With such tough conditions, our congratulations go to everyone who entered, you all deserve a medal!

A special mention to our youngest competitor Reeve Rist, and also to Peter Howlett, our sole Snowboard entrant this year. Congratulations to you both! Many thanks also to Oscar Johnstone who was our invited course pre-runner who wasn't too shabby as you can see from the times below!

The winner and placegetters of their respective categories were as follows:

Juniors: 1) Ethan Howlett, 2) Jonathon Gerstner-Stevens, 3) Reeve Rist

Womens: 1) Mel Cameron, 2) Natasha Poon, 3) Jacinta Poon

Womens Masters: 1) Viv Wall, 2) Heidi Fry, 3) Kim Walker

Mens: 1) Ross Barker, 2) Harry Cowie, 3) Matthew Wall

Mens Masters: 2) Ross Barker, 2) Gerard Gerstner-Stevens, 3) John Cameron

Here are all the results and times:

Here are a selection of happy snaps of the day/night, we're all looking forward to doing it all again in 2023!!!

Apple Safari users - Booking System issue

The booking system is a having some problems with the Safari browser. The full booking matrix page may not display properly, preventing you from making bookings with it. The devloper is aware of this and hopefully a fix is not too far away. In the meantime there are still ways that you can make bookings from Apple devices.

  • Use the simple screen alternative, or
  • Use a different browser, eg Chrome

The simple screen was developed as an easier option to use on phones and other small screens. The booking system may default to it anyway but you can click the phone icon to force it to use the simple screen. cbdweb screen toggle
