Location:
 Denali View Chalet is located just a two and a half hour drive North of Anchorage at the base of the Alaska Range 40 miles south of Mt McKinley’s summit.
From Anchorage, drive up the George Parks Highway to Milepost 114.9 where the community of Trapper Creek is located. Turn left onto the Petersville Road. The first 10 miles of this road are paved. At mile 14 the plowed section ends in a large parking lot just past a steep short hill with a curve at the bottom.
 Vehicles are parked here and skiers headed for Denali View Chalet are met by our baggage snowmachine. The guests then ski 1 mile on the un-plowed section of the Petersville Road to the beginning of the marked ski trail (yellow "Denali View Chalet" sign) which leaves the road to the north (right turn). It is 8 miles from here to the chalet, with markers along the set track showing the way.
 
We meet you 2/3-ways down the parking lot at the pre-confirmed pre-arranged time (normally 11:30 am), and haul your gear to Denali View Chalet while you ski in.
 Cubby's Marketplace at the "Talkeetna Y" has clean restrooms, good food, quick service, and is a good place to take a stretch and perhaps meet up with other skiers in your group. It's about a 45 minute drive from the "Y" to the trailhead.
 
 Leave early, take your time, and drive carefully.
