We are delighted to announce JG Black Book’s newest Collection Member – Tordrillo Mountain Lodge! Tucked in the heart of the Tordrillo range, on the shores of Judd Lake and with the Talachulitna River rolling by outside, Tordrillo Mountain Lodge affords guests views of two 11,000-foot volcanoes as well as North America’s highest peak, the majestic 20,320-foot high Denali. Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe and heli-skiing pioneer Mike Overcast have built more than a lodge—they’ve built a way to experience the vast grandeur of Alaska in comfort, style and ease – making it an exceptional fit for the JG Black Book Collection.
With a blend of posh amenities and rustic Alaskan architecture, Tordrillo’s 5,600-foot log structure has walls of windows that keep guests in the main lodge always glancing at the shifting skyscape over the Alaska Range and Judd Lake. Outside, a shore-side hot tub and three large cedar decks keep you in touch with the elements, while the inside features a spacious, open living area and a hand-built fireplace for fireside chats.
Moose Hall & the Lakeside Retreat, a luxurious enclave for up to eight guests, offers a private chef, a dedicated helicopter and gorgeous lodging in backcountry-modern style. And across the water, the Judd Lake Lodge, a hardwood and stainless steel architectural gem, combines luxury, style, and comfort during the winter season. With their three lodge locations and private helicopters, Tordrillo’s multi-sport trips put you directly in touch with the abundance—of trout, salmon, powder, whitewater, unpeopled space, whatever you seek—that makes Alaska so fascinating.
Attention to service is a hallmark at Tordrillo, where you can relax in a wood-fired sauna or soak in the copper hot tub by the lakeside while you sip a premium craft cocktail or a wine selection from the 500-bottle wine cellar. When you’re ready to venture into the great outdoors, a designated helicopter is waiting to take you in any direction your sense of adventure points. Tordrillo’s helicopters provide access to some of the world’s richest and most exciting fishing, sky-trekking excursions, remote climbing routes and rivers.
At Tordrillo, the cuisine is part of the adventure. Each course is a gastronomical event—seasonal herbs and organic vegetables, regional game dishes and seafood like Kachemak Bay oysters, white king salmon, Alaska king crab, halibut and black cod are given exquisite treatment by their gourmet chef.
