The 2020 ski season at Banool Lodge is like no other. All guest bookings have had to be cancelled and members are obliged to rebook under the condition that they arrive and leave the Lodge at stipulated times on a Thursday or Sunday.
The Committee deeply regrets having to turn away guests. We ask guests for their understanding and hope to welcome you back again when the crisis abates.
Members wishing to rebook need to go to our updated online booking portal and log in.
Banool Lodge is run by its associated ski club, Banool Ski Club. There is no permanent management at the Lodge. Instead, the Committee of Banool Ski Club assigns members to act as the Duty Officer when the Lodge is occupied. The Duty Officer has the powers and responsibilities of a manager. Guests can take their concerns to the Duty Officer and must comply with Duty Officer directives.
In 1972 Banool Ski Club bought Banool Lodge and secured a long-term lease on the land on which it stands.
Banool Ski Club members did much of the necessary renovations and extensions in the early years of the Club. Contractors carried out a major renovation and built a new extension when the lease came up for renewal in 2012.
Today's lodge provides comfortable family accommodation in apartments with fully serviced kitchens. There is a recreation room and easy access ski, snowboard and bike storage.
Banool Lodge is ski in, ski out for the greater part of the ski season.
