Our Popular Wengen Clubroom 2019/20
Our home in the Swiss Alps
We purchased the Wengen Clubroom in 2009 from the old Wengen Eiger Hotel. The Downhill Only Club Wengen Clubroom is a prominent part of life in Wengen for our members. It is in use most evenings during the ski season and for other events throughout the year.
Wengen Clubroom Diary and Events
Open From 6:00pm to 7:30pm every day during the ski season.
During this time members congregate , make friends and talk over a drink and nibbles. This time is often a key part of the day for many members. Ideal for an aperitif before dinner, to make new friends and catch up with old colleagues. The clubroom is often open from as early as 5:00pm.
For any queries or issues. The DHO Manager is available to assist in the office in the Clubroom every day except Saturday.
During the school holidays we like to vary the Wengen Clubroom hours. You can expect us to open earlier 4:00pm is normal As and stay open for longer.
As well as the evening opening, the clubroom sometimes hosts other events:
Please check our Facebook Page and the Events Pages to see any upcoming events
Tuesday afternoons (depending on numbers) – Bridge Drive
On Tuesday evenings, we may hold a cocktail party in one of the hotels in the village. If we do so then the Wengen Clubroom will not be open during the cocktail evening. If we are not in one of the Wengen hotels we will instead be holding a party in the clubroom. We ask for a small 5 ChF contribution to go towards the extra refreshments we provide in this case.
Thursday evening often includes the Prize giving for the race skied that day.
We also hold other events, such as talks, in the clubroom and it is also available for hire.
Our Wengen Clubroom has a bar where our members are expected to contribute their own drinks and snacks. The Bar usually has wine and beer available subject to members contributions. Crisp and similar snacks are likely to be on the bar.
We ask for volunteers from our members, who man the bar – pour drinks and help out at least once in the season. This is a fun and social activity where members can find new friends and great old ones.
The clubroom, has a small office used by the Wengen Manager. It also has a small library and plenty of comfortable seating areas for socializing. A television is available in the room for watching videos of the races and other events.
Guests are welcome, as long as they are with at least one of our members. Visitors who don’t know anyone, should ask at the bar for the Wengen Manager. It is a good opportunity to visit to see if the benefits and social side of DHO membership would suit them.
For any enquiries about the Wengen Clubroom, hiring or arrangements, please contact the chairman of the house committee, Brian Phillips
