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!

Went there for the weekend and it was as breath taking as you could ever see a must visit if you are here. Just a short drive from Anchorage.

We were attending a destination wedding. Seven Glaciers restaurant at the top of the ski area and a wonderful resort at the bottom. Check out the couple skiing down from their wedding at the top to their reception in the resort!

Very warm winter season at low elevation. Rained all night last night at 250ft. Snow up top. This morning's report is 30" of new snow top of mountain. Woke up to the avalanche blasting. Looking forward to a great day of skiing.
