The tram ride was short, however well worth it if you buy the lunch and ride ticket. We had 5 people and bought 3 tickets with meals. The hot sandwiches were very good and plenty to eat. Nice view from mountain top. My family enjoyed it.

Well the tram ride will be free, dinner will be expensive and worth it (see my review of Seven Glaciers Restaurant). The ticket is to have dinner on top of the mountain. The tram ride offers incredible reviews (although when we were there they had to close it down during our meal due to high winds and rain. The tram... More

If you have an hour or so to spend in Girdwood and don't have anything to do, you may as well take the tram up the mountain. The base is located at the Alyeska Resort, which is very nice and welcoming. I recommend trying to find a buy one/ get one coupon or similar way to reduce the price. The... More

Nice views of turnagain arm and glaciers going up the mountain. I think its overpriced though. If you are into hiking and have the time, walk/hike up the mountain via the north face trail and take the tram down for free.

We thought it was outrageous to charge $80 for a family of four to take one 7-minute tram ride. The view is lovely, but next time we will hike.

We stopped for lunch at the deli on the way back to Anchorage. Unfortunately the deli had closed for an event, but they had posted signs at the ticket area, so we weren't surprised to find it locked. The ride up and down is fun and the views from the top are spectacular - the Inlet, the lodge far below... More

Worth the trip up and a great view at the top. Had lunch at the deli at the top. Food not that great and the service very slow.

Took the tram up Mount Alyeska on a beautiful day when the view was terrific. Short hikes around the top, and friendly tram attendants made this is a fun trip.

Mt. Alyeska near Anchorage, AK is a beautiful site in the summer. The tram ride takes you to the top to see spectacular views of the snow top mountains. The gift shop provides the history of the ski resort. The resort looks like a fantastic place to stay for ski trip.
