Alyeska Prince Hotel and Resort, AK

Resort Overview

The word "Alyeska" is derived from an Aleut word meaning "great land of white to the east." Located 40 miles south of Anchorage along the National Scenic Byway, Turnagain Arm, the Alyeska Resort is a year-round destination.

The Alyeska Resort Mountain boasts nine ski lifts including a 60-passenger aerial tram, moving more than 10,000 skiers to the tops of its 68 runs per hour. Ski season runs from mid-November through mid-April, with weekend skiing continuing through Memorial Day as conditions permit. In addition, 27 trails are lighted for weekend night skiing December through March.

The Alyeska Tramway slows to half speed during the summer as it climbs to the top of Mt. Alyeska at 2,300 feet, allowing you to take in the spectacular views of Glacier Valley and Turnagain Arm. Two restaurants grace the mountaintop–feast on regional favorites like fresh Alaskan King Salmon, Alaskan Halibut or wild game while enjoying panoramic views of glaciers, the Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Range.

Whatever season you choose for your visit to Alyeska, you'll find mild Alaska temperatures and plenty of activities suitable for the whole family. Plus, you'll find the accommodations at the Alyeska Prince Hotel luxurious, with a full line of hotel amenities all the way down to bathrobes and slippers. And cherry wood furniture, nature photography and vaulted ceilings lend rustic charm to the resort experience.
