Lodge Usage

Lodge Leaders Role

The Lodge Leader's role is a very important one. One of the key roles of a Lodge Leader is to facilitate a happy, relaxed social atmosphere in the lodge. The Club wants guests to enjoy their stay and to use the lodges on a regular basis. A warm, friendly environment is a key part of ensuring this happens.

The Booking Officer appoints the Lodge Leader for each lodge and will provide notification prior to arrival at the lodge. Lodge Leaders are not required to undertake a duty from the roster.

The role of Lodge Leader is to ensure that the lodge operates smoothly and that lodge rules are adhered to. The Lodge Leader is to ensure that lodge duties are performed and that the lodge is left clean, locked and secure. According to specific requirements at the time, Lodge Leaders may adjust duty lists or request additional duties. Lodge Leaders should also report any maintenance issues to the Board on a Lodge report returned to the Bookings Officer.

Lodge Duties

Rostered Lodge Duties enable the lodges to run smoothly. Members and guests are responsible to the Lodge Leader for undertaking their duties. All lodge users are to do an equal share of lodge duties; parents may have to do duties on behalf of their children if the children are unable to complete duties satisfactorily.

Copies of the Lodge Duties can be found on the notice board in each wing of lodge

In addition to the rostered duties, each guest is required to clean their room and bathroom prior to departure, to equal or better condition than it was on their arrival. It is expected that all guests will assist the easy operations of the lodge by acting in a way that ensures:

Supplies and Equipment

The Club relies on members to identify supplies in need of replenishment and equipment in need of repair or replacement. Please ensure a note is made on the Lodge Leader's report if you notice anything in need of attention.

Paper products including hand towels and toilet paper are stored in the ground floor food store. The upstairs hallway cupboards should contain a stock of toilet paper, and Miele vacuum bags. Extra replacement vacuum bags are in the food store near the community food items.

Cleaning materials and light bulbs are to be found in the cupboards opposite the Eastern food store doorway.

BYO Linen

Pillows, a doona and blanket(s) are supplied for each bed. You will need to bring sheets, pillow cases and bathroom towels. The room allocation information includes the types of bed (Queen, Double or Single) in the rooms.

Check-in and Check-out times

Bookings changeover time is 12:00pm. Incoming members and their guests should not plan to occupy the lodge before this time. Outgoing members and their guests should complete their lodge duties and vacate the lodge before this time. Guests who wish to ski on the day of their arrival can leave their luggage in a ground floor area agreed upon with the departing guests. They may also use the ground floor toilets, but should not venture into the living room and kitchen as the outgoing tenants will be attempting to clean and clear fridges etc.

Departing Guests may also wish to store luggage on the ground floor for some time after 12:00 in order to use their last day of skiing.

Guest Register and Arrival/Departure

Add your name on the guest register to notify your arrival in the lodge.

Similarly, sign out on the guest resiter on the day of your departure.

Ski Tour Notification

The Lodge Leader must be notified of details of any proposed ski tours. If the Lodge Leader has left, leave these details on the notice board.

Personal Food Management

For your convenience to store your personal food supplies, each room has allocated to it a labeled food cupboard in the kitchen, and similarly a designated fridge.

Food must not be left in fridges when vacating the lodge (remember to check freezer).

Noise Levels

All noisy activity must cease at 10pm.

Gear Storage

Skis and snowboards are not to be taken into the bedrooms - if you are worried about security, bring a lock and cable.

No Smoking in the lodges

Children

Children are welcome in the lodge and are expected to behave in a manner that does not adversely impact the enjoyment of other guests. All guests share the responsibility of ensuring that a convivial atmosphere is maintained when children are staying in the lodge. Should any issue arise, please approach the child, their parent or the Lodge Leader.

Waste Management

Kitchen and other lodge waste is to be dealt with as described in the downloadable document (linked on the left). This document is prominently posted in each kitchen of the lodge.

Minimise waste - do not bring excess packaging with you!

Nappies

Please do not put dirty nappies in the rubbish bins in the lodges.

Power Failures

If you experience a power failure while at the lodge, all the electrical systems have to be restarted in order to maintain hot water and heating. There is one start button on each level in each Wing plus one in the games room.

If too many electric frypans are used at the same time on the same circuit the RCD, (Residual Current Device i.e. Safety switch) may trip. To reset the RCD it must be switched right off, then turned on again. The frypans are not necessarily faulty. Test them by turning on each frypan individually.
