The tram ride alone was a bit pricey ($25/pp) but we purchased the ride/lunch combo ticket ($35/pp) which gave us a $20/pp voucher for lunch at the cafe at the top of the mountain. The views were spectacular. Be sure to scan the mountain on the ride as we were told there were bear sightings often. The views were even... More

This was the start of our land tour of Alaska. The tram ride up is beautiful. The tram operator was very helpful & informative. The view from the top is beyond my ability to put into words.

Scenic ride up the mountain. Great views of 7 glaciers. Interesting museum. Our tram guide was interesting and provided useful information about the area and some hikes. Nice time.

The views were terrific. We rode the tram because they suggested we not hike due to early rain in the day. The views were awesome. The lunch was good. We were able to walk in the snow. The museum at the top was great. It gave a history of the resort... And Alaska. So glad we did this!

Going in early May, we were able to take the tram ride up the mountain, but once up, there was really nothing to do. Trails were not yet open for summer, so all we could do was get off, take a few pictures, and come back down. Our tickets were included in our hotel stay, so that was fine, but... More

The tram was a good way to reach the top of Mt Alyeska to enjoy the views and even walk in some snow. We had intended to walk up and tram down however the trails weren't open. The commentary by the tram driver was good.

What a great Tram trip to the top to see the spectacular views and enjoy some amazing food at the Glacier 7. We saw a Bear and her cub on the way up and down the hill. Grateful for the perfect timing. Thank you!
