Chances are if you love skiing and snowboarding, a winter trip to Alaska is on your bucket list. The question is where do you go and how do you get there? Do you think an Alyeska vacation is the answer? The answer is yes – there will be snow!
Being in semi-remote areas may leave you thinking that the options are slim, that you might end up sleeping in your vehicle. The truth is, The Hotel Alyeska at the Alyeska Resort will give you the 5-star treatment you would expect in a big city, but in the inviting little town of Girdwood, Alaska.
Once you land in Anchorage, you’ll take a 45-minute trip on the scenic Seward Highway to Girdwood. Nestled in the back and surrounded by mountains is the Alyeska resort.
There you will find slopes for all levels of expertise. You can take lessons, explore the groomed trails, check out the terrain parks, and more. You can even rent gear if needed. Once you’re done for the day, you can take the aerial tram up to the top and grab something to eat. The views are breathtaking!
After that, it’s time to check out the lodging. Since The Alyeska Hotel is right at the resort, it’s a quick trip back. You will find inviting, Alaskan decor, and a warm atmosphere with great views.
