Two of Alaska's fly-in mountain lodges have partnered to create premium heli-ski packages available for five weeks starting in March.
Teams from Tordrillo Mountain Lodge and Winterlake Lodge outlined the seven-night, small-group itineraries that combine outdoor adventure, Winterlake Lodge accommodations, meals from the kitchen of Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef and author Kirsten Dixon, and additional amenities.
Led by guides from Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, a property owned by Alaska heli-ski operator Mike Overcast and Olympic gold medal skier Tommy Moe, skiers and snowboarders will have access to remote and pristine peaks in the northern region of the Alaska Range. In addition to guide service, the package bundles 10 hours of A-star helicopter use and access to alternative outings such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and dog mushing.
During their down time, guests can relax with yoga classes, massage treatments and hot tub sessions back at Winterlake Lodge. Owned by Carl and Kirsten Dixon and their daughters, Carly Potgieter and Mandy Dixon, the property overlooks Finger Lake on the western edge of the Alaska Range.
All meals are included with the heli-ski package, and guests stay in the resort's private cabins.
Each seven-night outing is capped at eight guests, and the $13,500 per-person rate includes air transfers from Anchorage. For additional details and reservations, visit www.tordrillomountainlodge.com/winterlake-lodge/.
