I thoroughly enjoyed the slopes in this beautiful, wintery paradise! There is a good mixture of paths to take, so you don't have to worry about overcrowding. There are several areas where you can stop for photo opportunities; you will not be disappointed!

Stayed for a week and enjoyed some of the best winter conditions. Lessons at the ski school were great and we all progressed well. Loved the variety of runs and enjoyed the lifts with music and cheerful staff. We all had such a great time and would love to come back

The new multi use trail is a great walk in the woods On a sunny day the views are 360 degrees all mountains, babbling springs and birds singing Walked one hour- right after a rainfall- some potholes- ski trail is separate and well groomed.

A co-worker suggested a trip to Alaska. I thought it would be fun to experience "winter" in July and agreed to make the trip. I will be back to visit. The skiing is better than Aspen!

We ski here alot, for multiple days at a time. We love the area and for the most part, skiing is great. The views are amazing! Our family has been skiing here for years, you know its a good place/activity when your kids have the car packed and loaded and telling you its time to go!

The Alyeska Ski Resort Octoberfest was very well organized, well run by helpful employees, in a very friendly atmosphere. The German food was very good and abundant. The tram ride to the top of the mountain was a pleasant addition. The German bands were entertaining. And of course, the beer was very good! This was an over night stay in... More
