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.
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:
Washing up, drying up and putting away kitchen utensils is
completed in a timely manner.
Common areas including kitchen, lounge room and ski room are
maintained in a tidy state.
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.
Cleaning materials and light bulbs are to be found in the cupboards
opposite the Eastern food store doorway.
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.
The battery powered hand held Dyson vacuums available in each of East and West Lounge areas are provided for the convenient intermittant lounge quick vacuum and for the safest easiest stairwell vacuuming. They are not intended for the major end of week cleaning - please use the Mieles for that. The Dysons MUST be emptied after each use (very easy - no excuses), and their filters require regular cleaning. How often will of course depend on how much they are used. Please refer to the Manual in the Lodge Captains Reference binder (under the lounge level notice board in each lodge wing), or on the web link below.
Manuals for Lodge Equipment are available in the Lodge Captains Reference folder at the lodge. More recently pourchased equipment such as the Dyson Vaccuum cleaners and the new stoves also have PDF Manuals available here.
Manuals for Lodge Equipment are available in the Lodge Captains Reference folder at the lodge. More recently pourchased equipment such as the Dyson Vacuum cleaners and the new stoves also have PDF copy of the manuals.
Pillows, a doona and blanket(s) are supplied for each bed. The doonas have covers on them. Please bring and use both a bottom and top sheet on your bed. You will also need pillow cases, bathroom towels, and you may like to bring your own bath mat.
The room allocation information includes the types of bed (Queen, Long Double, King Single or Single) in the rooms.
The Long Double and King Single beds are available to cater for our taller guests. Note that you will not be able to use the standard fitted sheets on these - you will need either flat sheets or a fitted sheet for a queen size bed. Check the details of the bed types and beds per room plus the necessary linen for the beds and provided doonas.
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
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
Food must not be left in fridges when vacating the lodge (remember to
All noisy activity must cease at 10pm.
Skis and snowboards are not to be taken into the bedrooms - if you are
worried about security, bring a lock and cable.
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
Kitchen and other lodge waste was to be dealt with as described in the downloadable document. However the notice is out of date, the current instructions are that you DO NOT leave the recycling in the plastic bag when you add it to the skip.
Minimise waste - do not bring excess packaging with you! Pack your fragile food items into containers which can be used at the lodge to store left-overs, and if you still have food left-over at the end of the week, pack it out with you to feed to chickens/worms/compost at home. Freeze left-overs from the start of the week to use later in the week or to pack out with you.
Please do not leave dirty nappies in the rubbish bins in the lodge. Bag them up and dispose of them in the Garbage skip bins yourself.
If the Fire Alarm sounds a Lodge Captain is to go to the main front entrance foyer and open the glass alarm panel door with the key to silence the audible alarm (the key is either in the glass door lock or hanging on a nail above the panel).
There will be a flashing red light on the panel that indicates the area (zone) where the alarm was triggered – not the actual room but the level and wing.
Check all alarms in the indicated location (bedrooms and other areas) to ensure that there is no actual fire – the lamp on the detector will be flashing at the source of the alarm.
Reset instructions for the alarm are printed on a notice above the alarm panel and – reset only after the lodge has been fully checked to ensure there is on actual fire.
Alarms will operate if guests are illegally smoking in their room, if they allow
steam to escape from bathrooms, or due to use of an aerosol such as hairspray. The alarm does NOT automatically contact the fire brigade so if there is a REAL FIRE act accordingly and follow emergency procedures.
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.
