In the winter, guests at the resort can also enjoy 1,610 skiable acres with 76 named trails. As Alaska’s largest ski destination, both intermediate and advances skiers will enjoy the open bowls and vistas, as well a the longest double black diamond run in North America. For those who opt to visit in the summer, Alyeska Resort is your clients’ getaway to the Chugach Mountains. Here, they can view numerous wildlife and flora species. Other activities include yoga, a guided bike park tour as guests explore downhill mountain biking, and day trips to the Kenai Peninsula. Also in the summer, guests can enjoy the 7-minute scenic ride on the Aerial Tram, which climbs 2,300 ft to the top of Mt. Alyeska. From here, guests can see views of the Turnagain Arm, up to seven “hanging” glaciers, peaks of the Chugach Mountain, and moose and bear sightings are also common in the summer months. At the observation deck, guests can take in the panoramic views while enjoying lunch or an evening sunset. In the winter, the tram is used to get skiers to the top of the slopes.
