Enjoy the weekend at a rustic Alaskan lodge on Kroto Lake south of Mt. McKinley. Ski 8 miles into the lodge with just a day pack. Your gear and food will be brought in by the chalet owner on a snowmachine. Enjoy awesome views of Denali, fantastic company, wonderful group cuisine, sauna and more skiing on various trails in the area. Because the weather is often variable, bring clothing for wind, cold and snow. Space is limited. Dogs are not allowed on this tour and children must be 12 years old to participate. Proof of COVID-19 vaccinations are required. A $120 deposit to hold a spot is required by January 30. For more information, contact Karlene Leeper at 907-440-0049.
All NSAA Backcountry Tour participants must be NSAA members. Due to the COVID pandemic, members must RSVP and sign release forms online. All participants are also required to review the COVID assessment questions online within 24 hours of the start of the tour. See the complete Mitigation Plan on the homepage for Backcountry Tours. Social distancing will be practiced on all tours.
All the NSAA tours are accompanied by the Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol. If needed, they provide first aid and safety for tour participants. We thank them for their valuable help.
You can help support the Tours section by purchasing an attractive knit ski cap online.
Based on prior low snow years, we may need to change the location of the ski tour and will let folks know by email, the NSAA website or the Tours Hotline at 907-258-6800. Thanks for your flexibility!
