Come enjoy the serenity, the isolation, the intense quiet, and the abundant wildlife. The incredible beauty and wonder of the mountains, and the feeling of insignificance that being in this environment provides cannot be described—it simply has to be experienced. My name is Kevin Monson. My wife Sheila and I formed Backcountry Warriors in an effort to bring you the very best of Alaska from just one place—our lodge in Willow, Alaska. If you want to fish for salmon or rainbow trout, hike, bike, snowmachine (or snowmobile), cross country ski, go flightseeing, photograph the northern lights, or just kick back by a warm fire at the lodge, this is the place where you can have it all.

Aerial Tour of Backcountry Warriors

Having lived here for 17 years now I have hunted Dall sheep, moose, fished for salmon, rainbow trout, hiked 50 miles with 50 pounds on my back, ridden bikes, and camped out under the stars and have enjoyed doing all of these things. Now we’re eager to share these experiences with you. This is why we created Backcountry Warriors here in the Matanuska-Susitna (or “Mat-Su”) Valley. Our wish is to share with you what we have been able to enjoy in this amazing place we get to live called Alaska. Feel free to browse the site and we hope that through the pictures and videos you will understand why we want to share our adventure with you!

The long days of sunshine, the fast melting snow are hinting strongly that summer is almost here. And though I hate to see winter go, summer here at Backcountry Warriors is pretty magical too. 24/7 of daylight, BBQ s from our upper level deck shown in this picture. We burn the candle at both ends because we know. Winter is coming! 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
