Christiania Ski Club owns and operates a 32 bed lodge on the Whakapapa Ski Field at Mt. Ruapehu. The lodge is open throughout the ski season and is a great place to come back to after a day’s skiing or boarding on the mountain.
During the season, the club employees a custodian to manage the lodge and provide breakfast and dinner for members staying there. Members are also expected to help out by completing a duty each morning. These duties take no longer than 20 minutes and are allocated by the Party Leader upon arrival at the lodge. Lunch is available on a self-help basis.
The Christiania ski lodge features an excellent drying room allowing members to put on dry clothing and gear for skiing and boarding every morning.
In 2011 Christie Ski Club commenced a major refurbishment of the lodge. The lounge area has been re-roofed, re-insulated, re-lined and redecorated. It is a lovely warm space with a great big fire, a bar area and plenty of room to sprawl out in.
