The bus stop for the village shuttle and Snow Bus is directly across the road.

Rooms The rooms at Hibernation House are all basic motel style with ensuite bathrooms, a double bed, and bunk bed to sleep four. They are tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable. All rooms have a small TV, plenty of well designed storage space, two chairs, a small desk and bedside table. All rooms are located on the bottom storey of the building. The top storey has been converted into the administration offices for the resort, so no one will be stomping around upstairs late at night – happy sleeping!
