Pack for all seasons, take extra batteries, DVD's, remember few stores across the streets is greared for tourist, not so much employee's, Fairbanks will be 2 horus away, a shuttle goes weekly, unless your name is on the list or you have the day off and they have space, it could be long several weeks until you get what ever you need. If you take meds for any reason, take 3 months supply with you. there is NO drug store between Fairbanks and Denali.
Don't miss that shuttle bus..!!!! make sure you take alam clock, NO ONe will be calling you.. YOUR ON YOUR Own you left mother, sister or frend behind. its your responsibilites to be on time..And remmber you break the rules. you can be shipped home.....................Don't break the rules. I have seen many shipped home over minor thiongs. Do it right..and youc could have great career. do it wrong..shipped home.
2004 and 2005 I worked for Priness Wilderness Lodge, Housing is based in Healey, about 10 miles away from the lodge. Over all it's one of the best housing in Denali, in most cases, not all. two persons per room, dorm like, two single beds, small bathT.v will be limited and no centeral air. Either you'll need to bring your own fan or you'll purchase one. Housing is old 3 story loggers housing that has been fixed up. There a large employee dinning rooom, landuary room, small gym, up stairs lounge. Some times you'll have internet. Over all not bad. You'll be responsible for cleaning, bring your own sheets.
Best of luck
