Wolf Lodge Hot Tub Survey

Following the success of the recently installed Outdoor Hot Tubs at Mountain Bear Lodge and Beaver Creek Lodge. The owner of Wolf Lodge would like to canvas our clients opinion on installing an Outdoor Hot Tub at Wolf Lodge. The maintenance and running costs of the Hot Tub mean that offering a Hot Tub at Wolf Lodge would mean an estimated weekly rental increase of approximately £75.
Do you think this would be a good idea?
Please email us your views to gnl@greatnorthlodges.co.uk

Snow

The news from the Mountain is good - Snow conditions at present at CairnGorm Mountain continue to be of a very high standard - about as good as possible at this time of year. There is a dusting of powder on a firm pisted base in many areas of the mountain.

We have availability in Silver Birch Cottage if anybody out there wants to participate in any snowsports.
