ACCOMMODATION


FOX LODGE


Fox lodge is our on-mountain accommodation and sits below the base area at 900m elevation, just nestled in the trees halfway up the mountain access road. The Lodge has a 40 person capacity, and is available to stay on Friday and Saturday nights during the ski season.

There are 5 bunkrooms with a varying number of bunks in each room. A family room has two double bunks and 6 singles. There are 2 hot water showers, a washroom, drying room and a large heated common / dining room and a kitchen with gas appliances for cooking. The Lodge runs on generator power and there is fresh running mountain water. There are 4 toilets and an outdoor gas BBQ.








HISTORY OF THE LODGE



The first hut which was built in 1933 contained 12 bunks in two tiers with cramped cooking facilities - all in one room. A bunkroom was added in 1949 and the bunks from the old main room were shifted which made for a more serviceable kitchen and dining area. More bunks were added at that time in the new bunk room. Over the years another 14 bed bunkroom was built at the other side of the kitchen/dining room. In the mid 80’s a new common room was added and the old kitchen became the washroom and a drying room. A toilet block was built (previously they were long-drops out under the trees!) and two stand-alone staff huts were added. Over the years the lodge has gone through many upgrades from the tireless voluntary work from club members and friends of Fox Peak.
