Tordrillo Mountain Lodge
Just a 45-minute floatplane ride from Anchorage along the banks of the Talachulitna River and Judd Lake, this multistructure resort combines a six-room flagship lodge, newly renovated in 2017, with a lakeside bar and dining room (with 500-bottle wine cellar); a private four-room lodge; and two smaller private cabins, all with views of either the Alaska or Tordrillo ranges. But guests don’t come here to just ogle the mountains—they come to take them on. With Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe and Alaska heli-ski pioneer Mike Overcast behind the resort, plus access to 1.2 million acres of untrammeled ski terrain with phenomenal runs that top out at 7,500 feet, world-class heli-ski adventures are practically guaranteed. An exclusive partnership with Winterlake, another notable resort nearby, allows guests to heli-ski further north into the Tordrillo Range and into the Neacola Mountains.
