Mt Alyeska Tours

Mt Alyeska means “the great land” in Aleut, and the name ‘Alaska’ is derived from it. Part of the Chugate Mountain Range, this mountain in particular is now home to one of the state’s most popular ski resorts and is known for the view from its mountaintop. On a clear day visitors can see miles in every direction, with views of the Turnagain Arm, the Girdwood Valley, and surrounding mountains and glaciers, and at 3,939 feet tall, Mt Alyeska towers over the area below.

If not skiing on the mountain, there are half-day and full-day scenic hikes as well. The Mt Alyeska Trail runs three miles point-to-point, and during the winter a number of different snow activities can be arranged from here. Visitors can go 2,300 feet up Mt Alyeska using the aerial tram, which is operated at half-speed during summer to prolong views.

Practical Info

Mt Alyseka is about 45 miles south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway.
