Winters on the Taku Lodge are a vast contrast to the summers, when our guests experience our special spot. As of today we have 30 inches of snow and the river has completely frozen over. By mid October we have winterized the Lodge and head back into Juneau, to return again in February. We allow winter to take over and turn our water runway into a snow/ice runway allowing access by ski plane, as opposed to float plane. Once out at the Lodge our transportation takes the form of snow machines, snow shoes and cross country skis. Welcome to the Taku Lodge winter wonderland. Photos by Evan Bixby.
