Thredbo Community Bell

A commemorative ‘2037’ community bell, inspired by Attunga’s managers Elsa & Errol Hanlon, in honour of Thredbo’s 60th season, was recently installed at the top of the top of Karels T-Bar, the highest lifted point in Australia. Some photos of Elsa & Errol taken on the day the bell was installed are below.

New Booking System

Attunga’s new booking system has been activated on the Book & Pay Page of Attunga’s website. Unlike the old system which required a new line for each guest the new system can account for one or more people belonging to the same category such as “Member Adult”. From the booking example below covering 7 people note that rows 2 & 4 each account for 1 person whilst row 1 covers 2 Member Adults and row 3 covers 3 Members 2-12 years.

All guest names should be listed in the notes field of the form.

Booking Example

Click on the link for screen shots of the new booking process.

Bookings can also be made from browser based instances of Attunga’s Facebook page but please note that the booking system does not work from within in iOS & Android Facebook apps on mobile devices.

In future please use the URL https://AttungaSkiLodge.com.au rather than the URL beginning with http:// as security on the website has also been upgraded.

Attunga Subscriptions 2015/16

2015/16 Annual subscription invoices were emailed on 20 December from Attunga’s new accounting system and, due to learner driver error, they were unfortunately marked as “Draft” and dated 1st October rather than the date of emailing.

eWAY MasterCard & VisaThe new accounting system will automatically reconcile member payments and periodically send subscription reminders where a balance is outstanding.

The old payment page on the website has been removed as some people chose to use the page for 2015/16 subscription payments and others were using it for bookings.

Member Priority Bookings – Off-Peak

Due to increasing demand by members and guests for use of the Lodge during busy summer holiday periods the board has decided to introduce a summer priority booking system similar to the system that operates during the winter ski season.  This will ensure priority access for members who want to use the Lodge during these busy periods.

  • This system will apply only to the Christmas/New year period and the Easter week
  • In the case of 2016 will only apply to the Easter period.
  • Priority will be given to Members making bookings of five (5) or more nights (bookings don’t need to start on a Sunday).
  • Members will be limited to a maximum of three (3) rooms per booking during the priority booking period.
  • The priority booking period commences from the end of the long week-end in October and closes two (2) months before the booking period in question.
  • The board will allocate rooms based on when bookings were received during the priority period
  • Within two (2) months of the booking period in question any member or non-member can book any number of rooms subject to availability.

Members and guests are reminded that Attunga is a self-catering lodge out of ski season time although there may be opportunities for catering arrangements to be made with our lodge managers, Errol and Elsa for larger groups if there is sufficient demand.

Ski Conditions & Outlook – August Update

Little Beauty August 2014

Little Beauty August 2014

Many Thredbo locals are saying that the 2014 season, although slow to start, has seen the best ski conditions for 10 years. The MountainWatch August Season Outlook suggests that temperatures are likely to remain relatively low under the influence of high pressure systems providing the opportunity for snow making and the possibility of further snow falls later in August.

There are still a few dates available in August with September & October currently showing the one or more rooms available for all dates.

Member Rates for Partners of Members Children

It seems that not all members appreciated the significance of the announcement on Member Rates for Partners of Members Children made in the Attunga email of 4th May:

“partners of member’s children will be charged at the same rate as the member, and that children of partners will be charged at the same rate as children of members.”

This change was made to encourage occupancy of the lodge – it means that a members child can take a partner/friend i.e. not only male+female – it includes female+female & male+male at member rates.

Attunga Ski Lodge – Spring Update

The Board met last night to review a number of matters following the close of a very successful season, for Thredbo and for the lodge.

As members would be aware, the company resolved to change its name from Hyswest Limited to Attunga Ski Lodge Limited.  The change in name has been accepted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) so please address all future correspondence and payments in this name.  We also received ASIC approval to change the balance date of the company from 30 June to 30 September.  As a result, the company’s financial statements will be prepared as at 30 September 2010 and be finalised over the next couple of months.  As a result of this change, the date of the Annual General Meeting will also change, and is expected to be called for sometime during January or February 2011. Of course, we are sensitive to members being away over the Christmas period, so will be endeavouring to arrange it for as convenient time as possible in the New Year.

We are currently reviewing the performance of the club over the past eighteen months and developing a forecast and budget for 2011 which will be used to formulate the level of member subscriptions for 2011 as well as next winter season’s rates.  We expect to advise members of these rates in early December.  As part of this review, the Board has resolved to follow up a number of past year subscriptions that remain outstanding.  We suspect that a number of members may not be aware that they have outstanding subscriptions so we plan to send out reminder notices in the next few days.  We apologise in advance should the notice come as a shock.  Should you receive such a reminder notice and believe that you have paid, please contact our Treasurer, Jeof Falls, who would be pleased to respond to any enquiries.

The Board has also taken the opportunity to review the rates over the summer period.  Thredbo offers many varied summer events and, as most members would be aware, the lodge is available to members and guests over the summer period on a self-help basis.  We encourage you to use the lodge, which you can do so by booking with the Lodge Managers – e-mail via the website contact page or call Rob & Lyn on +61 403 756 066 or +61 2 6457 6050.

Effective immediately, the rates for summer will be as follows:

Members and Partners of Members $25.00 per night with Children $15.00 per night and Non Members $45.00 per night and Non Member Children $15.00

Any members who have booked prior to this notice will continue to be charged at the old summer rates.

The Board received several letters from members during the season with suggestions for improving the lodge.  We thank all those who have sent us emails, and look forward to providing feedback on the actions we will be taking in our December Newsletter.
