“In the city down hill skiing”
Review of Hilltop Ski Area

Hilltop Ski Area
Reviewed January 21, 2012

This is a perfect place to learn how to ski. Nice wide runs and the best part is, it's right in the city of Anchorage.

Good to take your dog for a walk in the summer time - nice trails are everywhere.

This ski area is just outside of Anchorage (actually almost inside the city limits). With decent slopes for beginners and intermediates (ski/snowboard), your more advanced winter enthusiasts might get bored but you can't beat its location and appeal. Tip. Try get there early, especially in the holidays as the area runs a few kids holiday ski programs so it can get a bit busy - and icy.

So if you're looking for somewhere to 'dump' the kids, trying to learn to ski or want to take to the slopes for an hour or two then it's the place to go

We were looking for a place close in to Anchorage where our sons could brush up on there snowboarding skill. Hill top was recommended and it was a great choice. They open at 3 pm in the winter so that school kids can go after school. We are from Georgia and don't see much snow there so our boys had a blast even though they spent plenty of time on the rear ends. The rates were reasonable and you could view the end of the ski trails from the lodge so you could keep track of your party as they came to the end of their runs.

I use to ski alot while in Fairbanks 10 years ago, not much since than. Took my new wife who never skiied before while visiting the parents over christmas. She had a great time and I did as well. The hill is short and not that hard but great for new skiiers and is close to town. If I was a good skiier this place would be boring, but im not.
