Our History | Tordrillo Mountain Lodge

History of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge

The rich history of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge started with 10 barrels of jet fuel, eight long-time ski buddies, and a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter with its nose pointed toward the Tordrillo Mountains in the Alaska Range. By the end of a week spent corn skiing and king salmon fishing under the June midnight sun, everyone was speechless.

What Others Are Saying

“It’s not just fly-fishing, it’s heli-fly-fishing. It’s not just hiking, it’s walking on the state’s third largest glacier. They’re not just cocktails, they’re margaritas made with 2,000-year-old glacial ice…The opportunities are many; the agenda is up to the guest.”
