Kantishna Roadhouse Speaker Series Features Denali Climbers

One of the perks of being a guest at Kantishna Roadhouse is the amazing array of speakers at our evening programs. We regularly feature artists, historians, Athabascan elders and other folks from the area who are knowledgeable about the regional geology, history, arts, topography and more.

Earlier this month, we welcomed Jennifer and Andrew LaBar, an adventurous Alaska couple who successfully summited Denali last summer. They brought ALL of their gear with them and did a slideshow presentation on two evenings about what it takes to climb the mountain. During the day they treated visitors to ‘show-and-tell’ on the lawn.  Andrew and Jen had the porch filled with people asking questions about climbing and what type of gear they use. Thanks to Jen and Andrew and all of the interesting and informative people who make our evening lecture series an important part of the Kantishna Roadhouse experience.

August 24, 2021 National Park Service Announcement
Denali Park Road Closed To All Traffic beyond Mile 42

Due to the unsafe conditions posed by landslide activity the Denali Park Road is closed. The Kantishna Roadhouse is closed for the season. The Kantishna Wilderness Tours bus tour is operating on very limited capacity for tours to Mile 42 through Sept 12.

The Kantishna Roadhouse is an “inholder” business and we must comply with the National Park Service. We are dismayed and saddened that we cannot keep our business open for the remainder of the 2021 season. And, as you can see, we have no choice but to cancel all overnight reservations beginning August 24th and through the end of the season. We will be sending you a cancellation notice and crediting you with a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. I fully understand that you wanted to be at the Kantishna Roadhouse, rather than reading this and making other plans.

Best Regards,
Marie Monroe, General Manager
