The newly ren­o­vated Tor­drillo Moun­tain Lodge in An­chor­age of­fers multi-sport, ul­ti­mate Alaska ad­ven­tures, com­ple­mented with re­mote, rus­tic-mod­ern lodges, pri­vate cab­ins, and lux­ury life­style ameni­ties. Named for the Tor­drillo Moun­tain Range, known for its world-class ski ter­rain and weather trends, own­ers Olympic gold medal­ist and guide Tommy Moe, and Alaskan heli-ski pi­o­neer Mike Over­cast, re­de­fined big moun­tain ad­ven­ture with heli-skiing when they be­gan of­fer­ing the trips that in­tro­duced this un­touched re­gion to the world.

Since then, Tor­drillo Moun­tain Lodge has ex­panded, of­fer­ing sum­mer and win­ter wilder­ness ad­ven­tures for all abil­i­ties in the Tor­drillo and Alaska Moun­tain Ranges. The redesigned main lodge of­fers a com­pletely trans­formed sum­mer­time guest ex­pe­ri­ence to com­ple­ment their fa­mous win­ter heli-skiing pro­gram. 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.

Just a 40-minute flight from An­chor­age, Alaska, on the banks of the Talachulit­na River and on Judd Lake, the re­mote Tor­drillo Moun­tain Lodge com­plex is within eye­shot of two 11,000-foot vol­ca­noes and De­nali, North Amer­ica’s tallest peak. From the minute the float­plane ar­rives, pro­fes­sion­ally trained staff cus­tom­izes the Tor­drillo Moun­tain Lodge ex­pe­ri­ence to all in­ter­ests and abil­i­ties.

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.

The re­cently-ren­o­vated flag­ship main lodge of­fers full- ser­vice, lux­ury ameni­ties, and rus­tic-mod­ern, Alaska ar­chi­tec­ture. Ad­ja­cent to pri­vate cab­ins and lakeside re­treats, the 5,600-square-foot log struc­ture fea­tures dra­matic walls of win­dows and three large cedar decks that over­look Judd Lake and the Alaska Range.
