Wintertime Alaska, Your Holiday and Adventure

The cold-cold air, the sounds of snowmachines warming up and snow crunching beneath your boots, the white puffs of air as your breath comes through your face-mask and frosted eyelashes weighing each blink.

It is a time of year here in Alaska where life can be very dangerous, it’s true, but it is also an experience that cannot be missed, so be sure to be prepared and share the experience with someone who knows what to expect.

Just a few days ago, one of our team came back into the Lodge after hauling water and told us what he had seen just moments before: a pack of 13 (thirteen!)
