After enjoying an incredible day on the mountain, we welcome you back to the lodge to relax and chat with the other guests in the lounge area.  It's such a great place to catch up on the days riding and pick up some tips from fellow riders about where to find some secret stashes.  Enjoy a drink and some snacks from the honesty bar or feel free to bring your own. It is the place to relax after a day on the mountain where you will be able to kick back and relax into the mountains of cushions on the huge lounge, play some cards, listen to some tunes or watch a movie, a favourite with all of the guests.

If you don’t feel like venturing out to one of the many restaurants in the Niseko Area, that's not a problem as we have a guest kitchen so you can cook your own meal and have a relaxing night in. If you do want to get out and try the numerous restaurants in the area there is a bus stop 100 meters from the lodge, with buses operating from 8.ooam until 20:00. The other option is to call one of the restaurants in Niseko Town for your free pick up and try out some of the local produce and culture away from the tourist hub of Hirafu.
