Denali Park Zipline is located minutes from the main entrance of Denali National Park. Our season is short and intense!

Room and Board
Denali Park Zipline provides dormitory-style housing in Healy, Alaska. Most rooms are single occupancy (no roommates!) but couples housing is also available. Kitchens and commons are in a separate area. Facilities include full restrooms, running water, on-site laundry, wireless internet, DirectTV, yard and deck with fire pit, grill, and outdoor games.
Although meals are not included, kitchens have ample cooking equipment, counter space, and appliances. Food can be purchased at Three Bears Grocery, just 2 miles away. Rates for our employee housing start at $80 per week (single occupancy) and include all utilities. All staff wishing to live in our employee housing must sign a housing agreement.
If sharing housing with around 20 co-workers doesn’t sound ideal to you, or you travel with an animal friend, you will need to look for alternative housing. Local cabin rentals in Healy (not associated with Denali Park Zipline) may be available and you will have to provide your own transportation to work.
If you get bored in Denali, it's your problem! Spend time at nearby Otto Lake or enjoy fishing in local lakes. Tackle countless trails to the peaks and ridges of the Healy Range, our base of operations, or travel into the Park for unlimited wilderness experiences. Mountain bikes are a popular option for rent or personal use inside and outside of the Park.
If 6.2 million acres of National Park isn't enough, participate in all the adventure and cultural activities available throughout the summer. Look forward to making connections and becoming part of one of the most unique seasonal communities in the country!
Complete the entire season with Denali Park Zipline, fulfilling your contract, and receive an end-of-season bonus. Returning employees have priority during hiring, first pick at housing options, and other benefits.
