airplane graphic Lake Hood Update
  • Lake Hood Winter Operations
    The lakes remain NOTAM'd "closed". Thin/poor ice predominates -- (very thin in spots). This year's shoulder season has been marked thus far with unseasonably warm temperatures, slowing ice development and creating poor surface conditions. Conditions change, so please always exercise caution and refer to the NOTAMs for current information, or contact LHD ATCT (907-271-2700) or Airport Operations (24/7) (907-266-2600) or the Lake Hood Office (907-266-2741).
