Alyeska Resort is up to its elbows in full blown winter. Curious, hang-around bands of low pressure have powdered Mount Alyeska flanks both day and night, leaving locals (and well-timed Spring Breakers) to enjoy the full gambit of snow terminology to describe the absolutely epic weekend at hand.
Best part: it’s still falling. Forecasting indicates still more of the rippable white stuff to arrive throughout the week ahead.
Though visibality was heard to occasionally be lamented, Alyeska slopes have rarely skied better. Silvertip–all of it–was practically UNSKIED throughout the first half of the day. Mine was the 2nd line through its freshly blanketed duck, roller, and chute sections. And that was nearly noon.
The ‘Powder Stoke’ doesn’t end at the piste. Alyeska Resort has rolled out daily night ski ops. while its dining and entertainment options have expanded offerings the universally wide grins growing.
This is Paulie at Girdwood advising: hang on to the snorkle!
