Winter Adventures

Come enjoy our Winter Paradise, we have miles and miles of groomed trails for the winter sport enthusiast or for a family get away. In just about every corner of Alaska there are sno go's, they are used for work and for fun. "Fun" is the key word here! Facts are that most folks believe that Alaska is really "Seward's Icebox" when in fact our region is blessed with a warmer average temperature then a good portion of the lower 48 states (but let's keep that a secret).


Hopping on an Alaska bush plane viewing the sights while being transported will get you excited enough. But that's just the beginning. Getting to the Roadhouse going for a guided or unguided sno machine trip on one of our brand new Snogo's Rentals – for the day. Imagine playing in our backyard on the historic Iditarod & Irondog Trails - with Mt McKinley (Denali) Looming in the near scenery! Then at the end of your trail nestling up to a warm wood stove enjoying some hot chocolate or having wine/ hot toddies, while enjoying the camaraderie and delectable cuisine of the Skwentna Roadhouse– a small family owned & operated Alaskan lodge – is well within your grasp.


We provide transportation to and from the State owned and operated airport!
