Comments from accommodation

A mere two minute walk from the main quad lift, Owashi Lodge is a backpacker’s hostel designed to cater for the free-spirited, independent skier and boarder. So if you want to be right in the thick of it – with the lifts and restaurants and bars right on your doorstep – then Owashi is the place for you.

A combination of small, private rooms and great communal spaces packed with entertainment gives you the option to relax in quiet comfort or hang out with fellow powder hounds.

New this season we have a bar for guests and friends serving affordable drinks so come and enjoy a few cold ones and enter a pool or darts comps to win yourself a prize and meet new friends. What’s the point of making that 40 foot drop unless you can brag about it over a beer?

So if you want to rip up some of the best powder in the world and stay in the heart of the action with your fellow travelers then come and join us at Owashi.
