Alyeska Resort in Alaska and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. Alyeska Resort is located near the town of Girdwood in the Chugach Mountains. Alyeska Resort is about 46 miles (74 km) southeast of Anchorage and Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

The journey from Anchorage to Girdwood/Alyeska Resort, along Turnagain Arm, is overflowing with incredible scenery. The stretch of road while beautiful, weather can sometimes be a factor, especially the wind, so keep this in mind for the drive.

Alyeska Resort is the largest ski area in Alaska and hosts the longest continuous double black diamond ski run in North America. It has 76 named trails and over 650″ of snow annually and lives up to its reputation as steep and deep. Alyeska offers terrain that will suit all ability levels whether on the slopes or spending time in a terrain park.

While skiing or snowboarding down the front terrain you will be treated to a spectacular view of Turnagain arm, and if the weather conditions are in your favour your visibility will be unlimited. You will not want to miss out on this view!

This premier year-round destination features the Hotel Alyeska, an award winning 304 room full-service property, as well as shopping, dining, fitness center, spa and pool that will add to your overall experience. The Hotel is located at the base of the mountain and is just steps away from the tram that will take you to the top of the mountain.

My time at the Alyeska Resort is filled with great memories, waking up to 10 inches or 25 centimetres of new snow, 3 days in a row. Riding through powder on the North Face area on runs such as Tram Pocket, Pandora and Chump Change was an incredible experience and will be etched in my memory forever.

When you are in Alaska make sure you spend a few days in Anchorage exploring all the city has to offer.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.
