While visiting Girdwood I decided to take Mt. Alyeska tram up to the top of the mountain and see the beautiful vistas and views from the the summit. On a clear Day you can see out into the Cook Inlet and view a nearby glacier, as well as the beautiful forest in Girdwood below the tram path. The price of... More

We were there at the end of the season and rode up with only 2 other people. The views were breathtaking. I'm so glad I visited this town and rode the tram. The resort is amazing and I will be back to go skiing in the winter. We had the pleasure of talking to the tram guide and learning about... More

We went up on the mountain early in the morning on the first tram on August 31. There were only 4 passengers and 2 restaurant employees on the ride up. The young man who was our attendant was informative but almost robotic in his narration. The lady who rode back down with us was very friendly and talkative. The views... More

The Alyeska tram provides one of the most breathtaking views in south-central Alaska. It is different from day to day and season to season. The price is steep for a 4 minute ride to the top ($25), but is easier on the legs. If you want to get the lung busting exercise of hiking up the North Face trail (~2100'... More

The view was great but somewhat clouded with the heavy fog. We got the tickets as part of our tour or we probably would have skipped because of the fog. If it is clear, don't miss it, if it is foggy, you may want to skip it because there will be little to see. We did have a partial view... More

This is a nice tram ride if it is a nice day with blue skies. The Dine and Ride is an excellent value. We had lunch and it was good.

We picked a great day to go - blue sky, so the views were great. You can choose to ride the tram all day long if you wish. Both of us are scared of heights, but we were so busy taking in the views and getting pics, that we didn't think about the heights. You may also hike up the... More

The skies were clear when we rode up the tram. We had beautiful views of all the mountains and the glacier surrounding the area. We saw a bear below us as we rode up the tram and a moose on the road as we were driving. Loved it.

We visited in August and found the blueberry festival going on at the ski lodge. Took tram to top of mountain, about a 5 minute ride. Pretty expensive, but the views were great. Clouds moved in and we couldn't see much after that. We did climb up the mountain to the bowl area and walked on the glacier, pretty stenuous... More

The tram was a great way to get up in the mountains for views of some of Alaska's glaciers. We were there in late August, and it was a little more cloudy than we would have liked. A visit earlier in the summer would afford better views. The price is a little high to basically go up and then back... More
