Alyeska Resort is Alaska's premier year-round destination resort and largest ski area. With an average annual snowfall of over 700 inches, non-existent lift lines, diverse terrain and unparalleled views, Alyeska has something for everyone! Nestled at the base of majestic Mount Alyeska is the 307 room Alyeska Prince Hotel, Alaska's only AAA four-diamond property. Conveniently located at the hotel, you will find restaurants and lounges, a fitness center, rental and repair shops, ticket window and distinctive sport and gift shops. And the Alyeska Tram and ski slopes are only steps away, making this a true ski-in/ski-out resort. Alyeska boasts 9 lifts; 2,500 feet of vertical fun; a base elevation of 250 feet above sea level which means plenty of oxygen; 2,000 vertical feet of night lighting; and more daylight hours than any other U.S. ski area beginning in mid-February. The ski day lasts from 10:30am to 5:30pm with night skiing until 9:30pm on Friday and Saturdays through mid-March. Skiing starts around Thanksgiving with daily operations through mid-April and weekend skiing through Memorial Day, conditions permitting.
