Open for Summer Business

At the beginning of the 2017 season Porters Ski Area took over the operation of the Porters Alpine Lodge. We are now pleased to announce that the Lodge will operate over this coming summer offering accommodation, food and beverage in a stunning Canterbury high country setting. 

Various accommodation options are available for families, individuals and groups across the summer months starting from 1st November 2017. We can cater to events such as Christmas parties, birthday celebrations, private functions and even weddings.  Feel free to contact us to discuss what we can offer for you or your group. 

A licenced bar and café will operate over the summer period with both lunchtime and dinner menus offered.  Please see the website for an up to date menu and hours of operation.

Whether you are passing by and feel like dropping in for a snack or drink or you are looking to book a few days escape in the magnificent natural playground of Castle Hill Basin we can look after you.  Your hosts Peter and Jeanette are looking forward to helping you make the most of your visit to the area.

For more information please see our website  or contact us on 033184011 or lodge@skiporters.co.nz.
