Illabunda Ski Lodge

Away on Holidays!

Even volunteers get holidays! I'll be overseas from Christmas to the end of February 2018, and won't have any ability to fix up website problems or process requests for Debenture sale. Please be patient and wait until I get back for these and other queries.

Website Under Construction

This is the new Illabunda website, which is currently under construction, and is not complete yet. Some of the usual functions are not yet available, so please be patient while they all come on stream.

Functions which are NOT available at this time are:

If you happen to venture into places which are not complete yet, you may get some unexpected behaviour, including website error messages and crashes. Please don't worry about these - all previous functions, and some new ones, will be progressively restored. Contact me if you have any particular difficulties that need quick resolution, or if you have any comments or suggestions.

Be patient!

Where is everything?

Yes, Illabunda is open in Summer!

Illabunda opens for bookings in "Summer" a week or two after the end of the ski season, through the Christmas holidays, until shortly before the next winter. Only members and those on the waiting list can use the online booking system. All others must use the downloadable forms, and their application must be supported by a current full member.

For more information, go to Summer Information.

Waiting List News!

The Committee has recently decided to amend the priority system as applied to the Full Membership Waiting List.

Now, the waiting list will be divided into two categories, the first being partners or adult children of current full members (family list), the second being everyone else (normal list). As they come up for sale, Debentures are offered alternately to the normal list first and then to the family list first.

This change will give people on the normal list a much greater opportunity to become Full Members sooner than previously.

The Committee has also decided to apply new rules to the sequencing of applicants on the normal list. Those who stay at Illabunda during winter, or who assist with attendance at Working Bees, will move further up the priority sequence.
