Alyeska Resort

Alyeska Resort near Anchorage—a winter paradise—with snow-covered mountains of ridgeline after ridgeline that goes on farther than you can see. No other place on the continent can make claim to such pristine beauty and wondrous backcountry adventures.

The nearby small town of Girdwood welcomes you with the sort of grog and grub and warm hospitality only Alaska can offer. You will be able to please your entire family with things to do including helicopter flightseeing around Alaska, bear and other wild life viewing, wildlife conservation center, Nordic and backcountry skiing, Northern Lights viewing, art centers and museums, and plenty more.

Top Skiing in North America

Alyeska Resort was placed in Skiing Magazine’s “Top 25 Resorts in North America.” Similarly, Condé Nast Magazine declared Alyeska has the finest views in all of North America. From the mountain, you’ll be gazing out upon the inland waterways of the Last Frontier. The ski season begins in early-November and continues on through late-April. The resort offers 1,400 skiable acres of ski trails and terrain parks for everyone from beginner to double-black diamond expert. That’s 2,500 vertical feet served up under an average of 631 inches of snow per year—over 50 FEET of SNOW! Extreme winters will impress you more, like during the winters of 1997, 1998, and 1999, when more than 1,100 inches fell at the top of Mt. Alyeska—more than 90 feet of snow! Wrap your mind around all of that and you’ll soon realize that skiing and snowboarding here is by far the best kept secret in North America. Don’t worry about your saftey or being a novice skier. The mountain’s ski patrol and instructors are true experts in their professions. These dedicated men and women keep a watchful eye out for you and your family’s safety.

Off the Slopes

In southern Alaska, Alyeska is over a thousand miles from the bitter cold of the arctic cap, where the mean temperature is above 20 degrees. The ocean itself helps to keep things warm as well, so you’ll be suffering no discomfort while enjoying all the scenic wonders of Alaska. The resort alone has at least nine restaurants featuring wild game and Alaskan seafood. Enjoy live music at a local pup or order in on an excellent hotel menu. This resort is a true mountain escape with amenities to pamper and persuade you. They spa alone is reason enough to make the trip with yoga classes, massage and facials, and welcoming to small or large groups. The line, “Enjoy the slopes, honey, I’ll see you in a few hours” comes to mind.

Getting Here

Alaska is truly vast, hundreds of miles between towns sometimes. But you don’t need to travel far to enjoy superb skiing and snowboarding in the Last Frontier! Getting to Girdwood is pretty much painless. You fly in to Anchorage, one of some 200 flights in and out of Ted Stevens Anchorage International each day, and then it’s only 40 miles south on the Seaward Highway, which takes you within four miles of the resort itself. Arrive during daylight hours—you’re certain to be in awe along the way.
