    Family no longer members at APIRA after about 65 years there
    Dad is 90 yo and his ski days are over so it was only me staying there a day or 2 and cant justify the annual fee for 1 or 2 overnights.
    So looking at Back packer for a possible over night mid week, at $75 the night sounds good.

    Might do a Wed and Thursday this week pending weather, get some fresh in Wed and another nice Thursday.

    Whats the low down, any cooking facilities, any locker to store gear while out for the day, ski lockup overnight.

    A few extra bucks gets you into a nice club lodge.

    I stay at Meki $70 midweek, $100 W/E (PP per night). Good cooking facilities even when full, dry room. Shared bathroom with 1 shower. Bunk accom.

    Stayed there for many years. Friendly & works well

    Actually heading up Thur for 3 nights. Looking pretty windy Fri though.

    Bit hard to know what to expect with "clubs" and their odd rules.
