Our lodge provides basic yet comfortable accommodation with full kitchen, conventional and microwave ovens, oven dishes, a fridge, pantry, toaster, jug, pots, pans, plates, mugs, wine glasses, and cutlery. A zip hot water system ensures hot water for tea and coffee always on tap. There’s plenty of bench space, sinks and cupboards.
The upstairs lounge and dining area has plenty of room and stunning views of the mountain, with a door on to the balcony/sun deck.
The Tukino Ski Field Ticket Office and Winter Ski Cafe operate from the lower floor of the lodge during the winter ski season. In summer the café becomes a kitchen and lounge for use by members and guests.
A generator is used for electricity and hot water, and cooking is by gas. Fireplaces provide heating both downstairs and upstairs. It’s usually possible to use the lodge at a basic level in summer without the generator.
The four bunk rooms come in a variety of sizes, with roomy single and double bunks available, and drawers to stow gear. The lodge has a drying room, two full bathrooms including two hot showers, and four flash flush toilets.
In 2012 we trialled a “Members’ Room”. We will continue this in 2013. TASC Members will have preferential booking access to this room to meet their need for accommodation for small groups or families at reasonably short notice. We hope this will ease access to the lodge for current members, and encourage more people to join up!
The members’ room is currently the Te Heu Heu room in the upper lodge and has three double bunks. See membership page for more information.
