Room amenities: You will be housed in one of a cluster of small living modules designed by a local architect. Accommodations at Snow Farm are rustic and pleasing but basic and spare. Each of our four living modules consists of a series of bedrooms opening onto a “corridor” which is essentially a roofed deck that is open to the outside at either end. Each module has its own centrally located bathroom unit which is shared with a number of other participants. The bathroom unit contains toilet stalls, sinks and hot showers and is accessed from the open corridor. One dormitory is mixed gender with two bathroom units, one for males and one for females. The bedrooms are arranged as doubles (or you may have registered for a single) with 2 comfortable twin-sized beds, a shelf unit and wall pegs for storing and hanging clothes—there is no dresser, closet, carpet, or chair. Each participant is provided with bed linens, towels, and blankets.

Facility amenities: Snow Farm features 24 hour access to a microwave and refrigerator. A massage therapist is available on site one afternoon during the week. While our facilities do not have air conditioning, there are fans in all studios and participants may bring a fan for their room or borrow one from Snow Farm.

Smoking policy: No
Smoking policies vary by facility. During all group events and activities, smoking is prohibited.

Bathroom: Bathroom (consisting of 3 sinks, 2 toilets, 2 showers) is shared by participants in the dorm. The average is 7-8 people sharing. One dorm is mixed gender with two bathroom units, one for males and one for females.
