Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is located in the heart of the Tordrillo Range and only a 40 minute flight from the bustling city of Anchorage. This multi-sport luxurious lodge has skiing at its heart and guests are in trusty hands as the owners are three long-time ski buddies, including Olympic gold medallist Tommy Moe.
Rustic Alaskan architecture (think log walls), cosy fireplaces and animal artwork feature in the lodge's deluxe guest rooms, family rooms and grand living rooms. Outside three large cedar decks overlook Judd Lake, surrounded by evergreen trees, and the Alaska Range.
Dining at Tordrillo is quite the treat with a menu featuring Alaskan seafood and regional game (think Kachemak bay oysters and grilled elk, complimented by wine from the 200-bottle cellar.
WiFi runs throughout the lodge but with a lakeside, wood-fired, hot tub you'll soon ditch the internet and embrace the great outdoors. After said embracing, enjoy the lodge's professional massage services and sauna to unwind.
Travel during winter to ski or snowboard remote pistes accessible by helicopter, or in summer to get your fill of salmon fishing, paddle boarding, and heli-hiking around nearby Mount McKinley.
