In their 75th year of operation, the Lake District Ski Club has installed a flushing toilet adjoining the ski hut on the slopes of Raise.
Much of the equipment used in building was carried up by hand, including the septic tank. The task also involves many months of managing the logistics of planning permission, building and plumbing.
As well as the newly christened Powder Room, a club hut has been present on the slopes since 1958. Members built the current hut, clad in cedar with a green slate roof, during 1999. The ski tow is located near the summit of Raise and offers 8 different runs.
The toilet is only open to members of the Ski Club however competent skiers to an intermediate level can purchase day passes to use the slopes. Ideal if you are stopping in one of our Ullswater Cottages or Keswick Cottages!
