What to Pack for Alaska

Alaska is known for constantly changing weather and a laid-back attitude. We recommend packing with a “Mountain Casual” style focused on comfort and convenience. When you venture outdoors, dress in layers to be prepared for the variable weather. The temperate coastal climate here at Alyeska Resort is characterized by long summer days with temperatures in the high 60’s and winter temperatures in the mid 20’s.
