Once run as a Japanese Pension, this sprawling lodge has been taken over by western masters but retains much of its pension charm. Eclectic furniture from bygone days, a random selection of carpets and mirrors and homeliness pervades this clean and cozy lodge. Paneled glass windows and dark wood sideboards evoke European charm, as do polished hardwood chairs and tables throughout. Communal spaces abound so you can get to know your fellow travellers, or retire to your private room. Decicated air conditioners, TVs and heaters in each apartment ensure your room is just right for you.
The rooms are large, with bedding arranged in single beds, and there are shared bathroom facilities. There is also a ski drying room to leave your stuff ready for the next day’s action. Pensions are built for communal living so expect lots of room and ample shared bathrooms and facilities to accommodate everyone.
Japanese style communal baths are separated by gender, and feature a deep tub to soak the tiredness out of your bones. Breakfasts at Popcorn Lodge are included during the peak season between 28th December and 21st of February – getting you slope-ready first thing in the morning with minimum fuss. The lodge has wireless internet.
