Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

I feel that if you are in the area, or even if you're not and this is a drive for you, this attraction is a must do. The view from the top of the tram was remarkable, and though I can not comment on the restaurant, everything else that I saw associated with this attraction was first class.
I definitely would recommend this if you are anywhere near Girdwood, Alaska.

We took the. Tram up just before sunset and spent a half hour looking around! We then went into the restaurant and enjoyed a great meal! Very nice experience!

We really enjoyed going up in the tram. The view was spectacular, and the tram operators were friendly and helpful. You can walk around at the top and take lots of gorgeous pictures. Go on a clear day and you'll love it!

We took the tram up mid-day as we didn't want to venture too far from Anchorage since we were flying out that evening. It is on the expensive side - $20/person. There are discounted rates for senior, military, and children. I picked up a discount coupon at the airport which gave us $2.50 off each ticket, and it's good on some of the lower priced tickets too! The tram goes every fifteen minutes and it's a quick ride up. The parking lot for the tram is about a five minute walk away, and there is a shuttle stop, but we did not see the shuttle bus. It was a beautiful September day when we went up, and there were a lot of mountain bikers going up on the tram. The tram operators did not let the number of mountain bikers affect the tram schedule.

Clouds moved in, but we were able to see glaciers and beautiful vistas. There is a small museum and giftshop as well as two restaurants - one casual and the other more formal. There are clean restroom facilities available. You can hike some trails after riding the tram, but we weren't up for that. The tram operators were very friendly and chatted with customers on the way up and back down.

We called in here while on a day tour with Alaska Cruise tours from Whittier to Anchorage, following a 7 night cruise from Vancouver. It is a nice cable car journey to top of Mt Alyeska. Fine views from the top. There is a restaurant at the top with panoramic views and a museum with some fine historical photos of the mountain. Clean and heated washrooms. The weather was not the best, but good enough. We saw a few hardy people who walked/ran up the very steep mountain, then got the tram back - respect!! We liked it here.
