** Special notes for winter **
As you can imagine, Alaska requires some extra effort in the winter. We will do our absolute best to make sure that you have as enjoyable of a time as possible with any weather mother nature may toss at us. If at anytime you have any concerns, please reach out to us and we will assist you the best we can!
- If snow and ice are present, please use extra caution with footing. We do everything we can to provide for safe traction, but like everywhere in Alaska in winter, it is a constant battle with mother nature!
-Please remove any ice cleats before entering the cabin to prevent damage to floor.
-There is a snow shovel and ice melt provided should you need it, though we will also clear snow as required, typically after around 3" of new snow. Please understand that snow clearing operations in the area can occur at all hours of the day and night creating periodic noise.
- An extension cord is provided outside for plugging in vehicles, should temperatures make it necessary.
- Please let us know of any issues such as possible frozen water lines as soon as possible. This is not normally an issue, but after sustained subzero temperatures, problems can occasionally occur.
-We recommend bringing some food just in case you need to wait for plows to clear the roads to get back to town. It's a good idea to travel with some in your vehicle in general , in case you get stuck on the roadside somewhere.
