Go Skiing

Alyeska Resort is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts all year long, but it’s also a place of fine dining and relaxation. Visitors who love to ski or spend a day at the spa (or both) will enjoy a stay at Alyeska Resort. Alyeska averages 669 inches of snowfall a year and it is home to the longest continuous double black diamond ski run in North America. The ski mountain has been called “steep and deep,” but don’t worry, beginners, there are plenty of trails that don’t require expert-level skills. During the summer, Mount Alyeska opens to mountain bikers and hikers so the outdoor adventures never end.

Visitors can take a scenic tram ride up to the 2,300-foot level of the mountain to reach stunning views of the surrounding mountains and of Turnagain Arm. The tram has windows on every side so travelers can appreciate the views all the way up (and down). At the top, visitors have multiple dining options to choose from that each comes with its own distinct views. In the summer, stroll around the alpine trails before boarding the tram to descend to the hotel, or in the winter, head downhill on skis or a snowboard.
