Mountain Updates

November 27, 2020

Hello Alyeska Fans,

Snow dance off those Thanksgiving leftovers! We have received some amazing early season snow from Mother Nature and our Snow Making team is hard at work laying down a solid base for the upcoming winter season. The mountain is now CLOSED to all public uphill access, including hiking, for the duration of the winter ski season. We look forward to seeing you this winter for ski area operations, scheduled on Dec. 18. Please stay up to date on the latest mandates from the Municipality of Anchorage and how they will impact our operations, we are committed to complying with these mandates as we get them.  Review our Ops Plan Here

Attention Hikers: The mountain is now CLOSED to all hiking and uphill traffic.

Winner Creek Trail is OPEN for out-and-back hiking but the Hand Tram is currently CLOSED. Please obey all posted signs and closures.

Get out and enjoy the hiking trails in the Girdwood Valley!
