Winter Adventures




Rainy Pass Lodge Iditarod from FRAME by FRAME productions on Vimeo.



There's no better place to celebrate winter than Rainy Pass Lodge—your authentic winter wonderland! In our location, we have some of the best snow available and one of the longest snow seasons in Alaska.


Use the Lodge as a starting point for incredible backcountry skiing. The Lodge, located right at tree line, has acres of beautiful trees and magnificent open meadows. Completely isolated yet readily accessible for a combination of "flat track" ski touring and snowshoeing. Miles of trails leave right from the Lodge, offering opportunities to skiers of all levels. Our trails offer some of the best remote skiing anywhere in Alaska.


Rainy Pass Lodge is surrounded by literally thousands of miles of untouched snow; making it a winter paradise for snow machining enthusiasts and winter adventurers alike. Play in the powder, pull friends on sleds, explore the spruce tree forests, or navigate the frozen creeks. And for the more adventurous winter enthusiast, Rainy Pass is a great place for the high mark snow machiner and for the mountain climber seeking numerous peaks to explore. (Travel at your own risk!!)


All Lodge guests, whether young or young-at-heart, enjoy our tubing and sledding hill, located on the property, just across the lake. You are likely to hear whoops of joy coming from the hill, any time people are whooshing their way down! With unlimited snow available, there is always plenty of snowball-fighting, snowman-building, and snow-angel-making activities to delight in. So come play in the snow with us! Don't forget, the Northern Lights are often excellent at this time of the year. A ski-equipped aircraft can be available at the lodge as needed, available to accommodate flightseeing and varied opportunities for our guests. (Please reserve the aircraft in advance.)
