Each booking period must be made on a separate form or be made online.
Bookings for consecutive nights in one lodge in excess of seven nights will only be accepted if other applications for the bunks are not received within 3 days of the extended period.

Your Committee made these rules after much concern about being fair to all. The Booking Officer has no authority to waive them so don't waste time asking. If you have a problem contact the Vice President for the Lodge in question. Do not hassle the Booking Officer.


All bookings MUST be paid for PRIOR to leaving for the mountain.
Pay by Internet banking to Aorangi Ski Club, ANZ account 01 0505 0085855 00 or by cheque.


A weekend booking is for two nights.
If the Friday or Saturday night is part of a longer booking that counts as two nights.
If a Friday or Saturday night is free by the Wednesday night preceding the weekend that Friday or Saturday may be booked as a single night.

School Holidays

Negotiations will take place in order to accommodate as many as possible. If applications exceed bunks available the allocation will be decided by ballot.
Non-Members bookings will be confirmed eight days prior to commencement of stay if bunks are available.
