THETORDRILLOS

"Even by Alaska standards the Tordrillos are huge and offer an incredible variety of terrain."

Todd Jones, Owner-Director, Teton Gravity Research

ANOVERVIEW

In 2007, Jim Conway along with the TGR crew, were able to film and document a large portion of the prime ski and snowboard terrain of the Tordrillo Range. The map below shows the zones and a photo log from the trip. The fun part is that while Tordrillo North has a good lay of the land, there is still plenty of exploring to do.

A SMALL SAMPLING OF THE TERRAIN DOCUMENTED IN THE NORTH TORDRILLOS

Bond

This area is a short flight south of the Lodge. It offers a variety of low angle, cruiser, and small steep runs. This terrain is great for warm ups, snowpack evaluation, or getting some quick runs in a weather opening.

 

Many of the step features in this terrain are as big as the expert faces at resorts like Jackson Hole or Snowbird.

 

Vertical Drops: 1500 - 2500 feet

Upper Trimble

Split by the north and south branches of the upper Trimble Glacier, this zone has some classic big lines for high speed cruising, small-to-large steeps and large glaciers as a backdrop.

Vertical Drops: 1500 - 3500 feet

Hayes Glacier

This zone is reminiscent of Chamonix with its rust-red granite spires, imposing couloirs, and sprawling glaciers. While there are lines of varying ability in this zone, it is imposing. It is, however, a place to be seen and there are lines that allow guests to experience this incredible destination.

 

Vertical Drops: 1500 - 4000 feet
