The powder piles up at Alaska’s largest ski resort, as Alyeska counts on a yearly average of 669 inches of the fluffy white stuff at the top, and 512 inches mid-mountain. The Chugach Mountain range resort boasts 76 trails over 1,610 skiable acres. Alyeska offers skiers and riders a broad spectrum of terrains from cruisy groomed greens, to the ultimate North Face challenge, North America’s lengthiest double black diamond. To reach even greater heights, you can lift off from the resort’s helipad, and venture out into the backcountry powder, to ski untouched bowls with stunning views of the Pacific. Or, maybe you have a bit more relaxation in mind.
If you would rather be knee-deep in a mud-bath than powder, or if you need a rejuvenating massage to get your muscles slope-ready, then Alyeska Resort has you covered as well. The Spa at Alyeska offers the utmost in restorative treatments. A lot more than just manis and pedis, you will find everything that you can imagine, and some things that you couldn’t imagine, from hot stone and Vichy massage to arctic mud facials and uniquely designed detoxifying body masks. If it is time for a renew or refresh, you shouldn’t miss an opportunity to visit this extraordinary spa, and you will want to follow up your day of pampering with an equally sumptuous dining experience.
