About Us

Welcome to Alpine Creek Lodge! We are an Alaska Lodge located at mile 68 of the Denali Highway, and we are open year round for you! We have spent most of our lives in Alaska.  Claude started out in Fairbanks as a kid, and then attended college at Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka Alaska. Claude has lived in many Alaskan communities, including Fairbanks, Homer, Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, Ketchikan, Craig, Wrangell, Juneau, Pelican, Yakutat, Soldotna and Kenai.  Jennifer grew up in Anchorage and then went back to Delaware for a few years with family and to attend college.  Our son, Bob, was born in 2003, and he is truly enjoying the lifestyle of remote living at the lodge.

There are so many opportunities  here that in a lifetime you couldn’t do them all. We want to welcome you to what we believe is the TRUE Alaska adventure. No long lines, no crowds, and best of all no buses! We want to share with you the things that we get to experience every day. The gorgeous scenery, the wildlife, the fresh air, in essence how Alaska was meant to be seen. Up close and personal. We would love it if you would come join us for some adventure, great friends, great food, and our genuine Alaskan hospitality. Thank you for considering Alpine Creek Lodge!

Claude and Jennifer Bondy

Here's a great video from our buddy Kevin Monson who designed our website! He's the Wizard of Technology! Great job! Cabela's did smart by hiring him!

OK Gang, here it is. After a close watch on the weather I made a snap decision to do my Cabela's shoot last evening. Weather today was suppose to be lousy and overcast today (Saturday) and looking out my window it is. Here is a short video of my shoot. DISCLAIMER: I had a very specific list of parameters that I was to accomplish for them. I am aware of the redundant move in and outs in this video. Keep in mind I was also getting still shots at the same time. To do this and make sure I didn't have to go back because I missed something, I would start in and move out or vice versa. This would insure that I would get the store up close and the parking lot at every step on the way in or out.

I have also made this video public so feel free to share it forward.

Enjoy and MAKE SURE to hit the HD button on the video!

With warm weather plaguing much of Alaska this spring, snow machine riding could be considered dismal….. Unless your a powder hound chasing endless fields of untouched snow high in the mou…

Here I sit, waiting for spring, and GOLD MINING! We are still searching the Surprise Creek valley for the hot spots, but even at that, we find gold everywhere! Can't wait to get it up and running this spring. The more tours I book to the mine, the more time I can spend up there, so book in now! Come try your hand at our 720 acres of untouched ground!

So excited for another dog sled race that is happening next weekend!! Here is the latest information about the race!

Facebook Picture
Denali DOG 140

The trail for the Denali Dog 140 is in. Total mileage from the start at Waters Edge B&B to the mid-point at Alpine Lodge is 69 miles.
The first 4 miles of trail are on Summit Lake. Summit is windblown and though a good trail base has been established, the first mile or so is likely to be punchy. Snow cover on Summit is 4-12 inches so the trail does have a bottom. There will be considerable additional snowmobile traffic on the trail this weekend so that should help with the base. The trail from Summit Lake to the Denali Highway is groomed eighteen feet wide. The Denali is also groomed all of the way to Alpine and there is good snow cover over the entire route. There is no exposed asphalt anywhere along the highway.
There are numbers of moose at a few places along the route—notably between mileposts 10-20 along the highway. However, snow cover on the tundra is low and they are able to move off.
