During times of low snow or when there are few guests staying in the lodge, cleaning requirements will be minimum and there for the lodge manager may be on limited hours.
Past experience has shown that with Edski’s Cleaning workload and Lodge Manager commitments, there are several hours free during the day for enjoying the resort or engaging with other businesses on the mountain for extra work / cleaning.

The Lodge Manager and Cleaner will be commissioned to start 18/06/2022 for induction in preparation for the school holidays.
The work on offer will be between the start date above and September, generally there is work until mid September but sometimes it can finish up early or later. This work is not guaranteed and can be cancelled at any time dependent on snow falls and guest bookings. We endeavor to look after our managers and so if things are getting quiet we will have a discussion, arrangements can be made if you need to continue on with us for a period after cleaning and manager work ends.

Tanjil, John Gardiner and Everest Lodge’s check in and check out times are during the day so cleaning duties at either accommodation provider will not conflict with Edski. If the Lodge Cleaner contracts their services to other parties then it is their responsibility that their cleaning duties at Edski are not affected.
