Located on Kea Ridge, the Day Lodge is possibly New Zealand’s highest cafe, providing stunning 360° views over the entire ski field, complete with an enormous sunny deck. On colder days you might find yourself indoors drying gear, warming up, and enjoying a classic fire top sandwich press toastie.
Our Day Lodge Cafe has plenty of tasty hot and cold options and great coffee.
You are welcome to bring your own food. We have plenty of seating, bag storage, water and toilet facilities for an epic day on the mountain.
