Premier Alaska heli adventure operation Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, (TML) is pleased to unveil a major renovation and lodging expansion at its exclusive property on Judd Lake in Alaska’s Tordrillo Range.

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge has partnered with two long time guests to provide the expansion upgrades. TML owner Mike Overcast says, “Going into our decade celebration, we’ll be able to provide additional top-shelf services to our guests, this season. It’s exciting to be able to have so many of our returning skiers and snowboarders get to enjoy all that we’ll have to offer this coming year. Even though every year they tell us it can’t get better, we’re prepared to take it to the next level”.

Overcast and his team are expanding the main lodge by several thousand square feet, including an upscale common room, new lakeside bar, renovated guest rooms and a high-end commercial kitchen, in addition to an upgraded infrastructure program. Also currently under construction are four new deluxe cabins and an operations center for guides and staff. Overcast says, “This is a no-holds barred kind of project. In terms of quality, it raises the bar for the industry, and we couldn’t be more proud of what is happening up here. For me, the support provides the needed capital required to take us into the next decade. Being able to share this with our guests is an honor.”

TML, in cooperation with Soloy Helicopter, has purchased its own helicopter and added remote fueling locations to provide the best and continued on-mountain experience.



Complementing the enhancement is a commercial-level internet router system. Overcast says, “This kind of opportunity to have an adventure of this level, stay in remote Alaska and remain connected is a rare opportunity. Tordrillo guests are able to come to the interior and still check in with their offices and families. This is important; as not everyone is able to go off grid for a week, or do they want to or need to.”

Rates and session dates for the 2017 Winter Season have been announced and can be found at the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge website. All new amenities and lodge improvements will be available to guests booking for the 2017 winter season, the 2017 Kings and Corn heliski/fish season and the 2017 summer adventure season.
