Built in the summer of 1980-81, Aardvark has a warm, cosy atmosphere. It is located in one of the highest positions on the mountain, with the ‘Big D’ chairlift and ‘Night Skiing’ (Sat & Wed) right outside the front door.

Inside the lodge you have an open fireplace and great views of the surrounding countryside. Aardvark’s aim is to provide cheap and happy skiing for both members and friends, and above all make sure everyone has a good time.

As we still await clarity from authorities re COVID-19 communal lodge operating restrictions/guidlines, we have SUSPENDED season 2020 bookings for the time being. Bookings already in our system still exist – at this point in time the Aardvark committee has simply decided to not take any further bookings until we can obtain clear information on capacity restrictions and directives which may impact on our ability to fulfil those bookings.
