It's officially that time of year when LEGO unveils the newest addition to the Winter Village series: in 2023, it's the 10325 Alpine Lodge. This set, consisting of 1,517 parts, adds a rustic element to LEGO's beloved Winter Village sub-theme.
The Alpine Lodge is a two-story building with a bar and seating area on the first floor and a room on the top floor. Inside the lodge, a light stone causes the two fireplaces to light up. Outside the lodge is a frozen pond, a snowman, snow-covered trees, an outdoor toilet and a snowmobile pulling a Christmas tree.

New LEGO element
The lodge, also known as the Two Pines Inn, has a unique design reminiscent of a Swiss chalet. This gives it a fresh and new look compared to previous Winter Village sets. The set also includes five minifigures: an innkeeper, three guests and a skier.
An interesting detail is the introduction of a new LEGO element in the set: a green fern. This element made its debut in another LEGO Icons set, 10316 The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell, and will also appear in an upcoming LEGO Ideas set. The Alpine Lodge uses this element in white to mimic the look of snow on pine trees.
Official release date of the 10325 Alpine Lodge
The 10325 Alpine Lodge will be released to LEGO Insiders on Oct. 1, 2023, and will be generally available starting Oct. 4, 2023. The set is priced at 129.99 CAD.
With its distinctive facade and warm winter atmosphere, the 10325 Alpine Lodge is a wonderful addition to LEGO's Winter Village series.
