The staff was amazing. They were quick to answer any question. Prompt service was completed with a smile. When asking the location of the pool, Jimmy could see that we were confused and offered to show us! That was so nice of him. I had forgotten what if felt like to have staff go out of their way for you.... More

We enjoyed the ride to the top and then we hiked to snow level. Wear good hiking shoes or study shoes.

Took the tram (gondola) to the top of the mountain and it was great. A nice Alaskan sunny summer day, with views to remember forever. Though the restaurant on top was being remodeled, snacks can be had at the gift shop, and it is only a 30 minute wait to go back to the beautiful hotel/lodge below. If you are... More

Overall we had a fun time in Alyeska ski area. We stayed at the hotel Alyeska where we enjoyed the nice indoor heated pool and surrounding grounds. It was also great access to some great trails. We also dined at the Seven Glaciers - pricey but worth the expense. The tram was fun when it was clear. It was a... More

My experience of the ski area was just average. My first issue was that when I booked my room, it clearly stated that there was free access to the gondola to take me up to the ski slope and top. This was not the case, as the operator charged me to go up and come back down. When I reached... More

Wife and I decided to stay the night here while traveling back from anchorage and we enjoyed the area which was clean and well maintained. The snow was melting as the season was over but we did get to see some of the surrounding area. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the nice area around hotel... More

Alyeska is easily the best downhill skiing in Alaska. It has slopes of all varieties, and the run can be pretty long if taken from the very top.....also, powder is pretty common at the top run. It's never really crowded, and there are plenty of places to eat and drink at the botto. Alyeska Hotel is a great place to... More

This was a very nice resort to stay at. Although it was not ski season they adapt to the other seasons very well and provide plenty of activities such as hiking, site seeing and others. They are a full service resort with all of the amenities. Be sure to ride the gondola to the top of the mountain where you... More

Took the cable car to the top of the mountain and had lunch. A wonderful view and lunch can be part of the ticket price. Best to go on a clear day!
