    Question Petersville Lodges

    Does anyone have the name (or web address) of some of the lodges located in/around Petersville? How far down Petersville Road is the main parking area? Obviously I'm not too familiar with the area but want to go for a ride and possibly stay the night this weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

    I've only stayed at Gate Creek Cabins--big thumbs up!! (they're on the web) You can also get lodging links off the Alaska State Snowmobile Association website and the Anchorage Snowmobile Club website. Curry Ridge Riders probably has links as well

    If I remember Gate Creek is at mile 10ish, on the right. The big parking area is at mile 12.3ish. They're are other B&B's in Trapper Creek and on the P-ville road before you get to GCC.

    Here's some info

    Default Saturday

    Tim,

    A couple other guys and I are heading up Saturday just for a day ride. If you want to jump in just shoot me a PM and we can work out the details. It won't be anything extreme, we are just trying to find a little powder to shake off the cobwebs .

    Default Kenny Creek

    I've been to Kenny Creek, and had a blast. Nice place, full bar, good food, etc.

    Do a google search for them and they are at the top of the list.

    Since you are headed up that way, I have a couple buddies from Soldotna wanting to ride Petersville a week after you are going to go. Thought I'd ask around for them and save a 650 mile round trip for them if this warm weather has made it not worth it. Let me know how it is. Thanks

    Thumbs down

    Well.....after 4 days of 40*+ we decided to wait for another snowfall. I just don't see how it could possibly be worth riding after this last week. Instead we are heading to Jim creek for some bunny hunting on the wheelers.

    Default Petersville snow

    Went to Petersville today and it was nothing to write home about. Still some snow on the ground, but it was mushy and spring like. Machines were running hot due to the warm temps and lack of powdery snow. The crowds were huge. If it gets cold we'll need some new snow up here. The current snow is so wet and heavy it will get real icy.

    I plan to wait for some new snow before heading back.

    AKMUD looks like I am not the only one. The bunnies are in trouble this weekend. A bunch of disgruntled sledheads with nothin better to do! I am gonna do my part to thin the rodent population in my little corner of the flats.

    Sounds good, we will be at the parking lot around 9am. If you see us, stop and say hi! I have a blue Dodge 2500 and will be pulling a trailer with a 6x6 and a honda 300.

    Default Any good to eat?

    I've never shot one because I don't know if they are good eating.
    I found out ptarmigan don't taste that good (the hard way) last year.
    So, when I'm snow machining should I blast bugs?
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.
