For a truly unique skiing experience, the Alyeska ski resort in Girwood Alaska is at the top of my list. Located a mere 40 miles from Anchorage, Alyeska is a family friendly ski resort with 1400 skiable acres. It has beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert terrain with 52% of its terrain weighted towards the advanced intermediate skier. I would say that overall, Alyeska is a challenging mountain to ski, but even the non skier can enjoy the tram ride.The views are beautiful, especially from the top where the 4-star Seven Glaciers restaurant is located. Located at the base of the tram is the modern 300-room Alyeska hotel. If you're interested, and you should be interested, ask the front desk to notify you during the night when the Northern lights are out. It's a site you will never forget! Aleyska is not only for the winter months either. It offers plenty of hiking and biking in the summer to round things out. Call me at ext 3692 or email me bill@ski.com and let's plan a great Alaskan adventure!
