Owning a membership in Elouera Ski Club is buying-in to a co-operative community that shares a common interest in alpine activities with a respect for the environment, our Pygmy Possum Lodge, and each other. You become part of a special crew that shares a home away from home in the heart of Kosciuszko National Park.
The benefits of membership include lower accommodation rates, priority over non-members for bookings, and opportunities to get involved in the club which is entirely volunteer run.
Obligations of membership include helping with the general operation of Pygmy Possum Lodge, which is self-catered and self-managed, via co-operation with other lodge guests.
An Annual Subscription fee (currently set at $110) is payable each year.
For more information and to fully understand the workings of the club, we recommend you read
Membership of Elouera Ski Club requires the purchase of 2 Subscribed Capital Units from an existing member who wishes to sell, and that the applicant meets the membership requirement criteria.
To become a member, the club requires applicants to meet the following criteria:
- Applicants must have stayed at the Pygmy Possum Lodge for a minimum of 4 consecutive days. This is to ensure that you are familiar with the organisation of the club facilities, which include self catering, cleaning and supporting the general management of the lodge during your stay.
- Applicants must be able to provide two member referees to whom the applicant is personally known.
If you do not yet meet these requirements, do not despair. We encourage you to book a stay as a guest, giving you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the premises and to meet some of our current members.
The Pygmy Possum Lodge booking officer can recommend some dates for your booking to help you to connect with members during the stay. Your visit to the lodge is a great opportunity for you to learn about the running of Pygmy Possum Lodge and start your journey to become part of the Pygmy Possum family.
Submit your name and contact details to register your interest in a membership purchase. The system will provide you with a temporary ID to use when making bookings.
The club will use this ID to identify you throughout the qualifying and purchasing process. If you are a non member who has previously been issued with an ID for the purposes of recording accommodation credits due to a refund (for example), you do not need to complete this step - go straight to step 2 or 3.
Multiple names can be registered on a membership as a contact or a joint owner of the membership. This contact information will be used by the club if the primary member is unreachable. You can add or change your junior member once you are a member. The Primary member retains all membership rights.
When you have registered and qualified for membership via the Steps above, the club membership officer will contact you with an offer from a selling member.
