The Log Lodge (building on far right) was built in 1997 and is the main centre for all activities. It is 4km from the road and with its wood stove, 12v lighting and oil lamps, it is a cozy centre from which to explore the trail system. Groups renting the cabins may also use the Lodge for evening activities or special functions. The Lodge is equipped with audio-visual equipment for both movie & powerpoint presentations. New for the 2007 season was the “Tanzhaus”, a great hit with guests, it is a multipurpose social centre used for ceilidh’s & set up as a games room.
For the 2017 season we have the all new “Uberhaus“, which is a post & beam Timberframe structure by Chris Bird of Lockport.
It can house a couple in luxury or will sleep up to 8 people in bunks on two floors.
A well equipped Galley and a “Larchwood” table to seat eight.
The “Chalet“, the “Grand Chalet“, the “Bunkhaus” & the “8 Tree Cabin” all with housekeeping facilities have:
- 12volt lighting
- propane burners
- single & queen sized beds PLUS
- a bed for your pooch
The wood fired “Sauna” can accommodate up to 4 people for a sauna. When doubling as a chalet (as a last resort) it has an extremely cozy queen sized bed for a couple to spend the night, but some find it a little steamy 😉 It has limited cooking facilities.
There is a luxurious two holer outhouse with inlaid hardwood seats & solid brass coathook for the necessities of life.
All pots, pans & galley requisites are provided, all you need is your own food.
All 8 cabins are grouped together in the “Tuonela Ski Village” which nestles at the base of the Telemark Hill.
Baggage can be retrieved from the parking lot and delivered to your cabin before dark.
New for the 2018 season is the “Rauch-haus”. It houses a small wood stove and a restaurant size “Big Green Egg” (Google it!). There is sitting room for you to sit and cook your roast, beer can chicken or other slow cooked foods. Please check with staff for Green Egg instruction.
Your hosts at SKI-TUONELA are Chris & Anni Law, both avid skiers who have sailed the world’s oceans on GROAIS 2, their home-built Ingrid cutter. The summer of 2007 they were cruising the Beagle Channel of Patagonia, Chile aboard the S/V Tamara. Their film is now out, entitled Patagonia 2007″. Their favourite cruising though is Newfoundland & Labrador and they have several films from their travels. Join them fireside for a cup of something hot and be regaled with tales of their adventures, or watch one of their productions on a Saturday night in the Lodge.
