We are searching for a new member to join our team at Winterlake Lodge. Winterlake is a boutique, award-winning lodge located about one hour north of Anchorage along the Iditarod Trail. We are the Finger Lake Checkpoint. We are open in both summer and winter seasons.
In the summer, we take our guests by helicopter to various locations within the Alaska Range. Adventure activities we offer our guests are hiking, river rafting, fly fishing, dog mushing (we put our dogs up onto a glacier in the summer), glacier trekking. We also offer mountain biking and other outdoor-based activities.
In the winter, we offer our guests the opportunity to dog mush, ski, and snow machine.
We are looking for a well-rounded outdoors person who can lead our small guide team in these activities, who possesses or can learn expertise in our geographic area, and who has a guest-forward personality.
We are members of the Nat Geo Unique Lodges of the World, adhering to an important and dynamic set of sustainability standards. We have a strong mission statement supporting the environment and the natural world. We are deeply committed to the Alaska landscape and culture.
Skills we are looking for: Leadership, management, outdoor expertise, interest, and commitment to a lodge lifestyle.
