On the morning of your departure, the first snowcat leaves the lodge at 7am, followed closely by the second. Do not expect to be on the road to your next destination until 8:30 am. When booking your flights, please allow for the timing on our end.

Due to our remote location and the logistics involved, transportation outside our regular schedule may not be possible and will be subject to a surcharge.
