Mountain Updates:

The Ski Area is OPEN for skiing & riding operations. Dress for the weather and get out on the mountain today! The Tram will upload & download skiers in order to access Glacier Bowl Express. We will also be operating the Bear Cub Quad, Wade's Way Magic Carpet and Finnland Magic Carpet. All scheduled lifts are open at Noon. Terrain open from the top will be Mighty Mite over to the Citation signline and down through the Bowl. There will not be any skiing or riding below the base of Glacier Bowl Express as mid mountain conditions deteriorated in this last storm. Lower Mountain terrain will include Christmas, the Chair 3 Road and both Magic Carpet zones. Be sure to check out the Lifts & Trails link for additional terrain updates.



The Inside Line:

Regardless of the weather and if you are on the slopes or slopeside, Alyeska is always the hoppin’ place to be for winter adventure and fun, the activities and events never seem to stop! From ski films to concerts to races to game nights, Alyeska and the Sitzmark are never shy of activities to keep you busy. Please see our Online Calendar of Events for more information and feel free to call the front desk at 754-1111 for more information.



Apres Ski:

Live music this weekend with Anchorage's very own Rabbit Creek Ramblers! Grab your partner and some dancing shoes and we'll see you at the Sitz! Headed for the slopes wanting to park right by the Sitzmark? New FREE slope side parking available to everyone! This new parking area is located at the base of the Bear Cub Quad. This new parking lot is open from 8am – 10pm daily. No overnight parking allowed. Access is via Crystal Mountain Road. This is the BEST mountainside parking at Alyeska!



Other Info:

Join us for snow safety events all week as we kick off NSAA's Safety Awareness Week here at Alyeska Resort! Along with January being National Ski and Snowboard Month, our goal is to invite new skiers and riders out on the mountain to learn new skills, and to help skiers and riders of all ages, experience, and skill levels to learn as much as you can to be as safe as you can while in the mountains. Please visit the Safety Awareness Information Booth located in the daylodge from 11am-3pm on both Saturdays and Sundays for the rest of the month for more information about Safety Awareness Week and the classes, events and demonstrations that Alyeska will be offering. Alyeska will also be offering free helmet rentals, discounted prices for helmet purchases, discounts on beacons, and more! We may have some surprises up our sleeves for those already skiing and riding, who are demonstrating safe practices while on the mountain. Be sure to join us and fill your head with knowledge that will benefit you and your riding buddies so we can keep everyone safe out there!
