Outside Magazine's best jobs of 2012     Photo: Outside Magazine

Location: Anchorage, Alaska
Number of Employees: 25
Digs: An open office with a deck that looks out over the Chugach Mountains. The office is just a couple blocks from the Coastal Trail, a bike/run/ski trail that runs along the Turnagain inlet of the Pacific ocean for 12 miles.
Culture: Since Nerland is employee-owned company, the staff has a larger-than-usual incentive to work hard and produce. To relax, many employees go to or from work along the trail, or take advantage of its proximity at the lunch hour. There’s also a fitness club just two blocks away, to which each employee has a paid membership courtesy of Nerland. Office anglers can catch wild Alaska salmon three minutes from the office's front door. And in the wintertime, skiers and snowboarders can head for Alyeska Resort, just 45 minutes away.
Sweet Perks: Employees are reimbursed their entry fee once they successfully complete any sort of athletic achievement, such as a marathon, 5-K, spint-tri, or bike race.
