Where is it? Alyeska Resort is nestled against the awe-inspiring Chugach Mountains. Offering year-round adventures and activities, Alyeska is located just 40 miles south of Anchorage, AK in the town of Girdwood, a quick 40 minute drive from Ted Steven’s International Airport.

In the summer months The Hotel Alyeska is the Alaskan base camp with quick access to the Kenai Peninsula for day cruises, fishing trips and flight seeing. In the winter months Alyeska receives an average of 650 inches of snowfall while 2,500 vertical feet of diverse terrain and short lift lines keeps skiers and riders coming back for more.
