Construction improvements include five new chalets built with sustainably harvested four-sided log, an expanded yoga, and fitness studio and the first via ferrata (fixed steel cable climbing route) in Alaska.

Nestled on the shores of the Talachulitna River and Judd Lake in the Tordrillo Mountains, and just a 40-minute floatplane flight from Anchorage, the remote Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is the perfect base for the Alaskan trip of a lifetime.

Owned by Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe and Alaskan heli-ski pioneer, Mike Overcast, together they redefined big mountain adventures when they started offering heli-skiing trips to this unexplored terrain over 20 years ago. Since then, they’ve expanded operations, bringing a five-star experience to the region and introducing a range of multi-sport wilderness adventures in the Tordrillo Mountains.

“We are excited about the growth and development of the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge since we opened almost two decades ago in 2006,” shares Mike Overcast. “Guests will have a new experience in 2019 from the stylish lodge ambiance, gourmet local cuisine prepared by private chefs and the many new summertime activities they can enjoy. We look forward to a new decade of adventure activity.”

Thrill-seeking guests of all abilities can experience endless summer activities to explore the rugged and beautiful Alaskan wilderness from helicopter accessed fat tire mountain biking, world-class fishing, kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting, and glacier hiking to wake surfing, waterskiing, wildlife viewing, and Northern Lights observation.

The extensive river system around the lodge is home to all of the Pacific salmon species, as well as rainbow trout, Arctic char, and grayling. Tordrillo Mountain Lodge’s remote location provides what feels like private water, accessed by helicopter directly or by floating in rafts inflated on-site at a backcountry river. Guest activities and itineraries are tailored to each group’s desires – from the menu to the adventure-

In the winter months, visitors have unrivaled access to the legendary Tordrillo Mountains for heli-skiing and snowboarding. The industry’s most accomplished and qualified guide team is ready to lead guests to steep couloirs, open powder fields, or to nab a first-descent.

On winter down-days, the lodge offers a range of activities including cross country/skate skiing and fat tire mountain biking on groomed trails around the property, snowshoeing, an ice plunge, and a hot tub.

For those looking for something ultra-exclusive, the Lakeside Retreat & Moose Hall sleeps eight and includes a private chef, masseuses and your own helicopter and landing pad. After a day of exploring the alpine surroundings, there are numerous luxurious amenities to round-off the stay including in-room spa treatments, a lakeside sauna, an outdoor copper tub, wine tastings, and an indulgent Alaskan gastronomical experience.

Summer packages from July 5 – September 15, 2019 start at $6,000 per person for three nights. Packages include round-trip float plane flights from Lake Hood, Anchorage to Judd Lake, lodging, two helicopter excursions, all gourmet meals, professional guide services, use of gear and fishing equipment, access to the fitness/yoga center, copper hot tub overlooking the lake and a wood-fired sauna.

Winter heli-skiing packages begin at $14,000 per person and include seven nights of lodging, seven days of heli-adventures and gourmet meals, safety equipment and ski/snowboard demos, five hobbs per group of four clients, transportation from Anchorage International Airport to The Hotel Captain Cook, one double occupancy room night at The Hotel Captain Cook the evening prior to your flight to TML, round trip flight between Lake Hood & Judd Lake with arrival on Saturday and departure on Saturday.
