STAY AT ALTITUDE FOR THE COMPLETE EXPERIENCE

One day is never enough! Why leave when you can enjoy a relaxed evening with other enthusiasts, and be in the prime spot for first fresh tracks tomorrow morning. This has to be THE best way to save fuel, avoid driving hassles, minimise your carbon footprint AND get your winter fix!!  

Broken River offers real mountain-style accommodation in three cosy, centrally-heated lodges nestled at tree line just 10 minutes walk from the first ski tow. Great company, food and atmosphere are topped off with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and valley.

The lodges have shared bunk-style accommodation and bathroom facilities, modern kitchens, communal living areas and drying rooms. There is a ski tuning/waxing area to keep your gear in tip-top shape and a sauna to refresh those well-worked muscles.

Accommodation is available from late June to October (conditions permitting). Do book your accommodation early to avoid missing out.

TWO STYLES OF ACCOMMODATION

Broken River Catered Accommodation

Catered - THE BELLS & WHISTLES

We recommend our Catered option. Relax after your day on the mountain while the chef prepares a tasty three course evening meal for you. Breakfast includes both continental or heartier options. Bring your own lunch or purchase something from Palmer Lodge on the field. You will be required to help out with light duties in the lodge each day. 

Your accommodation will be in Lyndon Lodge or Broken River Lodge, with Lyndon Lodge filled first. Lyndon Lodge is our most modern lodge with smaller shared bunkrooms and a family bedroom. Broken River Lodge has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and Castle Hill Basin, and it's three minutes closer to the slopes. The Lyndon Lodge family room can be booked for your use only by emailing bookings@brokenriver.co.nz.

Please BYO your own beer or wine as we do not sell alcohol down at the accommodation lodges. Beer, cider and wine are available up at Palmer Lodge on the field. BYO sleeping bag or you can hire bed linen.

Backpacker Ski Accommodation New Zealand

Self-Catered - if you're on a budget

Our Self-Catered option is a great choice if you're on a budget or like to do your own thing in a memorable setting. You'll enjoy the conviviality and traditional mountain atmosphere of White Star Chalet, our oldest and dearest hut, built back in 1953.

Make friends in the communal bunk/common room and experience traditional communal alpine living. It's "no-frills" to keep the costs down but central heating and hot showers will keep you in touch with the 21st century. Bring and cook your own food, but if you're wanting a break then dinner and breakfast can also be purchased. BYO sleeping bag & pillow case. You will be required to help out with a daily light duty in the chalet.
