With 309 inches total and 112 inches at the base, head to Alaska for the ski trip of a lifetime

Alaska’s only year-round resort opened for the season with one-third of its annual average for snowfall already on the ground. Alyeska Resort is sitting well ahead of other North American ski resorts for snowfall this winter season in only its first weeks open. Alyeska is the premier destination for recreation and relaxation this winter, beckoning to those who want to take advantage of the fresh mountain air, abundant snowpack, and mountainside accommodations.

A visit to Alaska is not complete without discovering how Alyeska pairs its signature steep and deep terrain for expert skiers with the relaxing mountainside hangout for those seeking the aprés ski lifestyle. From the comfort of Alyeska Resort, the winter aerial tram provides easy access directly to the top of Mount Alyeska.

With 76 named trails and a total of 1,610 skiable acres, Alyeska hosts a wide variety of terrain for experts, intermediates, and beginners. After a day of hitting the slopes, guests of the resort can also take advantage of the Alyeska Resort Spa, pool, and fitness center.

Named as one of the top 10 ski resorts in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler, come to Alaska and visit on-site restaurants in Alyeska Resort like Sakura Asian Bistro, Sitzmark Bar & Grill, Bore Tide Deli & Bar, and Aurora Bar and Grill for sit-down or to-go dining. These restaurants range from the fine dining available at Sakura to the mountain-side hang at Bore Tide.

Making a winter trip to Alaska can be made even more memorable by taking part in winter pastimes all easily accessible from the resort. Right outside your front door, explore the extensive Nordic trail system by foot or rent a fat tire bike. Snowmobile through the glacier-carved valleys of the Chugach Mountains, try out dog mushing or take time scanning the skies for the aurora borealis right from the hotel.

“Alyeska Resort can really be the base camp of your Alaska adventure. There’s never a dull moment here. Ski to your heart’s content, explore our mountains and glaciers and then head back to your room to be treated to all the best comforts of resort life in Alaska.”

– Mandy Hawes, General Manager of Alyeska Resort

Alyeska Resort is open for skiing, boarding, and other winter activities between now and April 23, 2022. SnowBrains will be visiting the first week in February, so look out for reports from Alaska.
