Winter is snow. The magical experience can be about the sports such as skiing, snowboarding, cross country, snowshoeing, and snowplay, but it can just about being in the snow.
Spend more time with friends and family, and more time in the snow. Come together with like-minded people who love the mountains and the snow.
SNOWSPORTS TO SNOWPLAY
Diana Alpine Lodge is well located for the experienced skier or snowboarder to be out on the runs within moments of check in. Out from our back door and down to the access lift the Gully Chairlift then take the Eagle Express to the south facing slopes. Or head straight onto the International Poma to access the advance terrain - The Maze. At the end of the day, return directly to the lodge by the home trail system, makes it a fantastic ski-in - ski-out location.
