Alaska Ski Vacations

Alaska, which has always been a source of awe and mystery, has some of the best skiing in the world, and the Alyeska Resort is one of the finest resorts in the state.
With a top elevation of 2,751 feet and a 250 vertical drop, the area gets an average of over 630 inches of snow annually.

Although this is some of the best skiing in the world, you won’t find the slopes overly crowded, and there are no long lift lines.
There are nine lifts, including six chair lifts and two surface lifts, and one cable car line.
There are 76 trails for beginners, intermediates, and experts, with the majority of the trails concentrated and designed for the intermediate skiers.

Night time skiing is allowed, which makes your ski experience much more adventurous and thrilling.
You will see snow capped mountains, hanging glaciers, and of course, the much famous Northern Lights.
This resort is ranked in the top 10 (#9) of the “Top Twenty-Five Killer Ski Resorts” by Skiing Magazine.

The ski season begins at the Alyeska Resort in mid November, and runs through mid April.
This area of Alaska boasts the longest daytime areas in the United States, with approximately sixteen hours of daylight each day during the end of April.
During December, however, there are only about seven hours of daylight – which makes night time skiing necessary (awesome) if you are going to get in the time that you want to spend on the slopes.

The Alyeska Prince Hotel is the place to stay to enjoy all the fun!
Here you will enjoy elegant rooms and fine dining.
Nightly entertainment is available as well.
There are other nightlife spots in the area as well, many which are are not associated with the Hotel.
