Daily Report

Porters is delighted to announce that the Porters Lodge will re-open on January 15th. We invite you to come up and meet our new managers, Michelle and Bruno, home again after several years working in hospitality in the UK. They have designed a great summer menu for you to enjoy - come up for lunch or dinner, a barista coffee and a snack, or just a cold drink from our fully licenced bar – we do recommend you book for evening meals. We have built an outdoor eating area - the new deck offers you amazing views up into Chrystal Valley and Porters Ski Area.

Why not stay the night and wake up to the quiet and majestic beauty of the Canterbury High Country.  How about an early morning fish on Lake Lyndon, an exhilarating exploration of Cave Stream, rock climbing or just a wander among the stunning Castle Hill Rocks - all are within minutes of the Porters Lodge.

Mountain bikers- good news for you! -  we are awaiting council consents for our new trails specially designed with families in mind – we will keep you posted and let you know when you can come on up!
