Getting to Tordrillo Mountain Lodge

Some folks might think that Alaska as a ski destination is just too far away. Those who have experienced Alaska and make the annual pilgrimage will tell you differently. From anywhere in the United States, Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is easier and faster to get to than any of the great Canadian ski locations. Having Anchorage as our hub makes flight plans easy. From Ted Stevens International Airport, we are just a quick 45-minute flight to Judd Lake and the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge.

  • How do I get to and from Tordrillo Mountain Lodge?

    Winter guests are met at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and transferred to The Hotel Captain Cook for the night. On the morning of their trip’s start date, guests are met by TML staff at the hotel, driven to the ski plane site, and flown into the lodge. At the end of the week, clients are dropped off at the airport or their hotel after returning to Anchorage mid-day. Summer guests are met for their trip in downtown Anchorage by TML staff on their arrival day and transferred the float plane site, where they depart for the lodge. Guests then depart from the lodge in the morning of their departure day and arrive back in Anchorage mid morning.

    We will help you get to the lodge in the event of changed or delayed flights. Additional unscheduled flights to the lodge from Anchorage may be charged to guests.

    The Eurocopter AS 350-B3 (A-Star) helicopter, known for its power, speed, and agility, is the foundation of our air fleet. For transportation between the lodge and Anchorage, we use DeHavilland Beavers, and for remote scouting a Piper Super Cub is available. Learn more about our fleet.
