apres-ski Facility

Porters Alpine Lodge is purpose designed and built to best meet the needs of skiing families.
Families come on in after a hard day on the slopes, hang  wet gear up in the drying room, maybe put the thermals on to wash ready for tomorrow and then just relax. With no dinner to prepare - it's all about chilling out and nowhere better than in the relaxing lounge area. The kids will probably make new friends in the games room or stay closer to you and the roaring fire. After dinner you might want to look to trying out a heated bath under the stars.
