Great Northern Snowcat Skiing Lodge

The lodge provides very comfortable digs with accommodation in single and double occupancy rooms with ensuite. After a superb day of riding powder, you can relax in the spacious common room in front of the fire. Or you can warm up in the sauna, hang out in the games area to play ping pong, pool or darts, or catch up with the outside world on your laptop.

A powder hound’s favourite meal is a big mouthful of powder, but luckily Great Northern Snowcat Skiing also has fabulous meals too. The food is so plentiful that perhaps you’ll need roomy ski pants?! All meals are served at the family-style dining tables where you can swap powder stories with your new friends.

Also see the Powderhounds review of Great Northern Snowcat Skiing for more information on the accommodation.
