Schuss Ski Club Booking Rules
All bookings must be for a minimum of 2 nights.
The winter period is defined as from the Friday of the long weekend in June to the date advertised as the end of the season by the resorts.
Members are able to make bookings online from the 1st of November.
At November 1st should there be more booking enquiries than beds available for any dates a ballot will be conducted to allocate beds for that period.
For the month of November only bookings for members and affiliates will be accepted for a maximum 2 weeks in High season.
From 1st December members may extend their 2 week booking and any new bookings made by members can be made without restriction.
From 15th December guests included in member bookings will be allocated beds should they be available.
Where other members are included in a booking, unless they have the same address as the member making the booking, it will not be accepted until the other members contact the booking secretary or lodge manager.
Bookings are not transferable from one member to another.
Non-members may book for low season from 1st November.
High season bookings open to non-members from 1st March.
Payment is required for a booking to be confirmed.
When booking online and choosing to pay later than payment is required within 3 days of receiving the tentative booking email containing the payment link, failure to do so will result in the booking being cancelled.
If you have selected to pay for a booking by electronic funds transfer then you must initiate payment and also email us payment details within 48 hours of making the booking, receiving approval of a booking request or before arrival, whichever is earlier. Failure to do both may result in the booking being cancelled without notice.

- any one other nominated person accompanying a Member in the absence of a spouse or de facto spouse;
- any children of a Member under the age of 18 years;
- any two grandchildren under the age of 18 years, accompanying a Member who is the grandparent of those children;
- a person and their spouse or de facto spouse, being the person who transferred membership rights to a child or grandchild, provided that child or grandchild has retained the transferred membership rights, and

To obtain the affiliate tariffs the affiliate must be registered.
Room Allocations & Single Room Surcharge:
We charge per person not per room. However the online booking system requires a selection of rooms. As such we reserve the right to allocate you any rooms with enough beds to accommodate your booking at any time up until departure. In rare circumstances this may mean a change of rooms during your stay.
We will try and satisfy requests or selections for specific rooms or room types but any room or room type allocated or selected is not guaranteed and may be changed by us at any time. If you have requested or selected a room for 2 people with a double bed this may be changed to a room with two single beds. If you have selected a family room this may be changed to two rooms. If a family has selected two twin rooms this may be changed to a family room.
We do not place strangers in a room together without their agreement.
A single person occupying a room is required to pay a surcharge being equivalent of a second person at the same tariff.
If a person in a group requires a room to themselves or the group requires that we accommodate them in more rooms than necessary to accommodate the group, surcharges will apply.
If two people book as a group and one requires a separate room, both are subject to a surcharge unless, at the time of making the booking, the other person agrees to share the room with other people
If two or more people book as a group and more than one person requires a separate room, each person who is in a room by themselves is subject to a surcharge.
The surcharge is only waived for children (i.e. those under 18)
The online booking system allows a person to book a bed in a given room, by doing this the person is indicating a willingness to share with a stranger and is not subject to the surcharge.
All non-winter booking enquiries will be directed to the booking secretary.
