Alaska Summer Watersports on Judd Lake

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is located on the banks of both the rushing waters of Talachulitna River and the peaceful waters of Judd Lake. Within eyeshot of both bodies of water are two 11,000-foot volcanoes and Denali, North America’s tallest peak. Judd Lake is a gorgeous body of water that provides a great location for fishing, wildlife viewing, birding, and of course, watersports.

What Others Are Saying

“It’s crazy that at Tordrillo at this time of year, it is light at 10:00 p.m. The magic hour starts close to midnight, as the light softens and a surreal glow bathes the Alaskan peaks. Your connection to nature is intensified as you share ski turns, laughter and maybe even a glass of Dom Perignon or a Macallan 30-year-old whisky while seated on a mountain peak with friends.”
