This post comes from questions and speculations made about what goes on during the Winter, after most of the Guides have left and returned to their homes, after our Fall Hunting Season comes to a close. When the last of our Fall guests leave and the majority of the Guides have gone home, remember, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Extreme Pro Team Guides) live here, in Chisana, year-round.
After our Fall Photo Safaris and Fall Hunting Season’s last guest and client return to their homes, after the camps have been put away for the Winter and the range horses have had their shoes pulled and one more dose of wormer and vitamins have been given and they are delivered to their Winter graze, the focus shifts back at the Lodge in Chisana.
Snow-machines are tuned up for the Winter, new chains are cut for traps, firewood continues to be cut, stock here in Chisana needs to be cared for carefully in the low-low temperatures, water continues to be hauled and Winter Cabins are readied for our Wintertime guests.
Winter Excursions are a wonderful way to fully experience Alaska in the Wintertime. Off trail snowmobile riding, ice fishing, wildlife photo opportunities and the awe-inspiring wonderland of the Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve.
The family friendly atmosphere in Chisana with Pioneer Outfitters is only intensified by the cozy, closed in, feeling of the Winter snows and bring to mind, coming in after sledding in the country for hot chocolate and crackling fires.
Pioneer Outfitters Winter Predator Hunts and Trap Lines are exciting changes for seasonal hunters and the variety of fur-bearers and predators will thrill even the most dedicated of hunters.
The Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis, are Alaska’s pride and joy of the Winter season. The dancing lights, night rainbows and magical flow overhead will leave you speechless, each time.
