Separate dorm rooms for our male and female guests (4 bed space in each). Our dorm rooms are equipped with in-room bathroom, so you don’t need to step out into the cold for bathroom businesses. There are also plenty of closet space for storage and designated spots for drying and storing wet or snow gear, so you will be ready to hit the mountains the next morning. We also have lockers in our dorm rooms big enough for laptop storage (just bring your own lock!)

Private Queen/Double/Triple Rooms

These rooms are great for families or groups of three or more who seek exclusive room usage. Our family rooms have private ensuite bathroom with two sets of bunk beds, either twin over double or twin over twin, and can sleep up to 4 people. Prices for these rooms per person are less than three of our dorm beds, a definite bargain for having a room all to yourselves!
