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.
