United States' First Heli-Biking Adventure Takes Flight in Alaska at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge



TORDRILLO, Alaska, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is the first outfitter in the United States to offer heli-biking, an unrivaled outdoor experience that enables mountain biking access via helicopter to millions of acres of pristine mountain terrain in the breathtaking Tordrillo Mountain range of Alaska. 

Heli-biking routes with Tordrillo Mountain Lodge begin from the flanks of Mt. Spurr volcano and wind down paths carved in cinder and pumice deposits from area volcanoes. Some bikers may choose to forge new paths, or follow gentle ridge lines to alpine lakes. Others can bike directly on a glacier, for a whole new snow biking experience. Riders can choose a descent or ascent of virtually any length or difficulty.

As a top provider of incomparable adventure experiences, Tordrillo Mountain Lodge invested in the country's first Aero Quick Design Release helicopter bike rack, a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that can transport bikes without the burden of disassembling them for flight. With the new rack, four bikers and their bikes, as well as an experienced guide, are flown into the Tordrillo mountain range from the Lodge's helicopter pad and are ready to hit the pristine Alaskan trails in just minutes. 

"Our goal at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is to provide our guests with experiences they couldn't get anywhere else," said Mike Overcast, Tordrillo Mountain Lodge's co-owner. "As the first in the U.S. to provide mountain biking access via helicopter, our guests can now enjoy the unspoiled landscape of this spectacular mountain range. Heli-biking really does give you a new perspective on the sport ? it's a game-changer for adventure-seekers everywhere." 

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge guides can take anyone who can ride a bike -- from a child to a senior citizen ? on a customized mountain bike adventure that offers expanses of stunning wildflowers, wildlife sightings, glaciers and more, all without encountering any other bikers or having to load and unload bikes from chairlifts. The lodge has a fleet of Fat Back fat tire bikes to fit almost anyone interested in heli-biking, as well as top-of-the-line safety gear including helmets, pads and gloves. Their experienced helicopter pilots are expertly trained in high-altitude flight, as well as the intricacies of flying with bikes attached to the aircraft. 

"Safety is our top priority at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, and heli-biking is no exception to that," continued Overcast.
