About the Resort

Alyeska Resort sits in the heart of Girdwood, a glacier carved valley. To the west and north, the mountains of the Chugach State Park provide a stunning backdrop over Alyeska. At 495,000 acres, it is the third largest state park in the United States.

In 1954, 11 Girdwood residents passed the hat and raised enough money to purchase what became the land base for a major ski area. Through initiative and perseverance, they developed a ski area that was small in assets but big in promise. They found a French Baron who shared their dream. Francois de Gunzburg installed a Poma chairlift, built ski trails and a day lodge and ordered Chair 1, a 5,700-foot double chairlift that rose 2,000 vertical feet.

Today, Alyeska Resort offers 1,610 skiable acres, 76 named trails and over 669" of snow annually along with expansive mountain and ocean inlet views. Whether beginner or someone looking for a challenge, Alyeska is truly a playground for all levels of skiers and riders.
