If you would like to download our booking form simply click here and you will be taken to the Hanmer Springs Ski Areas website page with booking form to be completed and sent back to us.
You drive right up to the Ski Area (although chains must be carried) and can get from the carpark straight onto the lifts. There's a centrally heated Day Lodge complete with stoves, toasted sandwich machines, tea and coffee for your convenience when you want a relaxing break. Ski hire, waxing and repairs are also available on the mountain. (Along with sales of equipment, in nearby Hanmer Springs at the Adventure Centre on Conical Hill Road)
Experienced Ski Instructors are on hand to help you get the most out of our skiing, and qualified ski patrollers are always on duty. If you decide to stay at the Ski Area (there's comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 64 people) you can choose from either family rooms or bunk type accommodation in the Fraemohs lodge. Self-catering accommodation is available and the 5 night 6 day backpacker deal is exceptionally good value. There's nothing quite like waking up in the midst of the mountains
ACCOMMODATION ON THE FIELD - ROBINSON LODGE
Robinson Lodge is named after Brian Robinson, a Rotherham farmer and former Club President who was tragically killed by a kick from his horse in the mid 1980s.
It is a pleasant wooden building located a few steps down from the Day Lodge. There are four bunkrooms which each have six bunks with room for four mattresses on the mezzanine above them, and four family rooms with one double bed and three to five single beds each.
The Lodge therefore caters for a maximum of sixty four people. All rooms have north facing windows and there is central heating from nightstore heaters operated by the generator, which also heats up the water for the showers. Waking up in a family room and watching the dawn light up the snowclad Inland Kaikoura Range is a fantastic experience!
There are some spare blankets and pillows but generally people should bring their own sleeping bags and pillows. No smoking or candles are allowed in the lodge, and battery lamps are provided for those who need light after the generator is turned off each night.
Cooking is done in the Day Lodge kitchen where there are plenty of cooking utensils and crockery. Visitors should bring their own food supplies. Visitors are requested to keep their rooms clean and tidy.
ALL SEASON USE
The Robinson Lodge has hosted botanical and photographic groups during the summer and is ideal for parties with a difference at any time of year. Conference groups looking for a mountain hut atmosphere would have all they needed, and team building weekends could be pretty special in the isolation of the mountains.
Ski season charges: $30 per person per night (discount for groups of over 10 people). $70 for family (2 Adults and their children) per night.
