Stay with Us
Come and stay in our lodge nestled at the top of Charlotte Pass Village and be rewarded with panoramic views of the mountains.
Offering twelve ensuite rooms accommodating a mixed number of guests, each room has its own thermostat controls and all linen and towels are provided. Included in your accommodation tariff (you can select from 2, 5 or 7 night stay) are three delicious meals daily. Arlberg is renowned for its hearty breakfasts, warm lunches, bluebird day barbeques and every night we enjoy scrumptious three course dinners. We are offering a simplified menu during the low season in winter, but this still includes full catering. Children at the lodge are especially well catered for with an earlier dinnertime and well suited meals made from fresh quality ingredients.
Our sunny north facing lounge area is arguably one of the most stunning rooms at the top of Australia, complete with fabulous views on three sides of the ski slopes and mountains as well as a central open fire. It has a guest kitchen, coffee machine, tea and hot chocolate making facilities and a games cupboard and provides a friendly communal area to relax. We also have a spa and sauna in the lodge for you to warm down after a big day on the slopes.
At the lodge entry is a convenient boot room, drying room and ski storage area. Washing and drying facilities are also provided.
It should be noted the club cannot guarantee an allergen free environment. As the village has extremely limited medical facilities and can be completely isolated in some winter weather, those with severe food allergies are advised to have prepared a plan should they experience an allergic reaction while staying at the lodge.
Enjoy our Village
Snowbound in winter, at 1765m, Charlottes Pass is Australia’s highest and oldest Alpine resort. During the winter months Charlotte pass runs a small ski field with heaps of character and is not as busy as some other ski resorts in the snowy mountains, meaning there are no cars, no crowds, few if any lift queues, and a very friendly atmosphere. It feels like a snowy escape, away from the hustle and bustle, and is great for young people as they can achieve a level of independence not found at other resorts.
The resort offers gear hire and a snow sports school, including a Kids Club, catering for 3-12 year olds. The village has two cafes, and there is nightly entertainment on offer at the Chalet, located a 5 minute snowy walk from our lodge.

Charlotte Pass was named after Charlotte Adams who was the first woman to climb Mt Kosciuszko in 1881.
Explore the Snowy Mountains
The lodge makes a great base to explore the Main Range of the Snowy Mountains. There are satisfying destinations that you can explore in a few hours and be back for lunch, or take a packed lunch from the lodge and make a day of it.
In winter, cross country ski and snowshoe daytrips can take in the summit of Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko (16km return), Mt Stillwell on the Kangaroo Range, historic Seamans Hut, Blue Lake and the headwaters of the Snowy River.
Downhill and cross country ski slopes with 4 lifts are right outside the front door, ranging from a good beginners slope, to a variety of more challenging intermediate groomed runs and expert chutes.
In the summer months, these same trails are open to hiking and mountain bikes and the lodge makes a comfortable base. Out exploring you will see an ancient landscape carved by receding glaciers in the last ice age, walk though snow gums, and can enjoy lunch by the headwaters of the Snowy River or an Alpine lake. Above the tree line the best months for enjoying the alpine meadows are January and February. The clear air away from light pollution makes for unforgettable stargazing. Trout fishing is also popular in the area.
The lodge aims to open for 4-6 weeks in the summer for catered stays, and is open to members on a self-catering basis at other times.
