Thredbo was first developed in the 1950's and the Club was lucky enough to obtain one of the largest and best located sites available in the village. Near the Thredbo Alpine Hotel with access from both Diggings Terrace and Friday Drive it is convenient to both the Village centre and the lift terminal.
The present 38 bed Lodge, designed byDavid Jackson, was built in 1988 and has had major internal modernisation and refurbishment over 2011/13. The building is an open ”C” shape to follow the contours of the site, to capture the sun and to afford the best possible views of the mountain.
The Lodge has been laid out so as to offer a variety of types of accommodation to appeal to all skiers within the Club. Thus, there is the traditional “club” type accommodation for large groups with shared facilities, much the same as our previous 12 bed Lodge, plus there are three other units of varying sizes which offer members the onvenience to book a unit to suit their group size. All units are fully self contained and the Club operates on a self help basis. There is an on site caretaker to manage building maintenance, cleaning and key security.
On the top floor there is the the club style accommodation (know as The Club), with 5 twin / double bedrooms & two & a half bathrooms, there is also the “Dormitory” room containing 4 beds with it's own separate bathroom & toilet, suitable for children or casual bookings. The Dormitory can be booked in conjunction with any of the units. The large central kitchen, dining, lounge area has an open log fire and opens onto a balcony with BBQ and views of the mountain.
There is also a communal games room on the top floor with table tennis / pool table which is available to all residents staying in the Lodge.
On the middle floor there are two apartments, “Snowgums” with four twin / double bedrooms, two & a half bathrooms, kitchen, dining / living room; and “Merrits” with three twin / double bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, dining / living room. Both have wood burning combustion stoves and access to a balcony with a BBQ and are self contained.
The ground floor has “The Chalet” apartment with two twin / double bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, dining / living area. Also on the ground floor is a spa, sauna, shower room & toilet for communal use by all residents. The drying room, laundry, workroom, ski racks and caretaker's unit are all situated on this floor.
