Tordrillo Lodge

Alaska

TAGS: HELI-SKIING, WOOD-FIRED HOT TUB, FIVE SPECIES OF SALMON
There may be no other place in the world that delivers such astounding adventure options from one hub. Five years ago, former Olympic alpine skier Tommy Moe and professional freeskier Jeremy Nobis decided to open a lodge. Result: a 5,600-square-foot property plopped on the shores of the Talachulitna River, on a roadless hunk of the Alaska Range 70 miles west of Anchorage, with a squad of pro guides on staff year-round. In summer, cast for five species of salmon and football-size rainbow trout right out the front door. Come winter, ski 4,000-foot lines in the Alaska Range with an assist from Tordrillo's chopper. In June, do both with a five-day Kings and Corn package. If you get bored, raft the Class III Happy River, paddle among calving icebergs, or pay a visit to the in-house masseuse and soak in the wood-fired hot tub while staring out at the smoking crater of 11,070-foot Mount Spurr. From $600 per person per night; epicquest.com
