  • Description


    Our lodge is located in a beautiful river valley at the end of the Matanuska Glacier. We provide food and lodging for visitors of the glacier. We are looking for outgoing adventurous folks to help us by waiting tables and cooking in our restaurant. The lodge has a dining room, hotel rooms, gas station, as well as a state park that we take care of. Our location allows our employees to spend their free time hiking, ice climbing, glacier trekking, four wheeling, flight seeing, skiing & enjoying nature. Ultimately we hope to pass along our love for the outdoors and encourage the next generation to protect and share the natural resources that surround us.

    We pay our staff at least $12.00 per hour (more based on experience). Cooks and waitstaff share tips. We offer free housing as well as one free meal per shift.
