Sheep Mountain Lodge sits perched on the side of a glacial valley with a multi-colored mountain looming overhead on one side and a backlit vista of the jagged Chugach Mountains across the drainage. Comfy individual cabins, a shared bathhouse with hot tub, and wood-fired sauna make this a fantastic refuge from the Alaskan winter when we were there just after Christmas. The owners are a young family who do their best to accommodate guests from grooming Nordic ski trails to preparing a wonderful pasta dinner in the depths of winter. We are avid cross country skiers and found this to be a perfect refuge for a few days of skiing, tubbing, and getting away from the city life in Anchorage. The moonlit trails were exquisite.
In winter, food service is very limited and the nearest inn is about ten miles down the highway. A microwave in the cabin we stayed in allowed for heating nachos, burritos, and other similar fare.
