Winter at Alyeska Resort

Winter has finally made its way to Alyeska Resort, and we couldn't be happier!  From the Magic Carpets in the base area to the top of Glacier Bowl Express, skiing and snowboarding is on!
Learn to Ski and Snowboard month has been extended through February; and it is such a great deal!
Another great special is the ski free midweek when you stay at the hotel package.

One our 2 Magic Carpets, which is GREAT for beginners.

Happy lift ops hope you enjoy your day on the mountain.

The million dollar view that we'd love to share with you!

End of Summer at Alyeska Resort

It's been a while since I've posted here, and wanted to catch up.

Downhill biking has been going GREAT this summer! We've been far busier than the first and second season.  The trails are good, the weather has ben better than normal, and people are pumped to ride.

Some lift ops looking at the terminals for the new lift 6.

Progress on the new lift, as seen from Ted's Express.

There have been some muddy/ rainy days, but the bikers are still ready to rally!

Berry picking in Girdwood valley was great this summer! So thankful for all the beautiful days we had this summer!

Fantastic March at Alyeska Resort!

The Lead lift operators did a ski around a couple of weeks ago, just to make sure everyone is on the same page.
 It was good for the team.

Norman was stoked to run lift 1 for the last night of night operations.
 Super Grover (Shawn) was also on the scene!
 We had an end-of-night ops torchlight parade. It was super fun.

Then we had some serious snow days. On Tuesday, we had about 4 feet of fresh pow AND sunshine!
 Geoff manning the top of Ted's Express.
 The North Face was skiing great!
 From way out on the corner of the Autobahn.

A bit of a sundog indicates more weather or the horizon.

Great visibility on the North Face.

The bear statue at the hotel has some snow on him. Life's been good.
