Shoestring Lodge is what it says: a lodge for shoestring travellers with a dormitory like environment. It has all the basics: bed, bathroom with hot water, tv, laundry room, and a shuttle bus to the slopes. Ah, it also has a pub right next door. But don't worry about the noise level from the pub -- the pub is located on the other side of all the rooms.

We got a room with 4 bunks and a private bathroom, and it was fine. They provide you with bed linen and towels, and the rooms are toasty, in case you wonder if you will get cold just by looking at the thin blanket provided.

There is one computer for guests, but you have to pay to use it. There is also a parking lot, and the Lodge is located about 5-10 minutes from the village.

For the price, this place is a great bargain! Unfortunately, they do not offer discounted lift tickets... guess that would be too much to ask, eh?
