The Main Lodge at Entry No 2 houses the Solitude Club (for members) and the Thirsty Squirrel. There's locally brewed beer, wine, mixed drinks and comfortable surroundings and is the gathering place for the Yurt and Roundhouse dining departures. The Thirsty Squirrel is where local skiers gather and reflect on the day's powder skiing.
