Celebrating 10 years of Alyeska Lift Crew blogging

I can’t believe I’ve been posting here for 10 years! I have made so many friends and learned so much along the way. I’m very excited to be starting my 17th season working in lift operations at Alyeska. We did the first training session this weekend.
Meet the crew:

We are stoked to bring you a safe, fun time on the mountain you know and love!

Stay tuned for more adventures and fun times with this winter’s awesome crew.

Tram, fresh snow and bears

You never know what you're going to see when you head out on to the mountain! Last weekend I was doing some set up for the Blueberry Festival and I saw these cute little guys running around. 
Remember that wildlife is WILD, and keep a safe distance if you do encounter any. Getting between a mama and her babies (of any species) is a bad place to be.

Saying goodbye to Chair 1

This summer is the end of an era at Alyeska Resort. Since chair 1 hadn't run in 2 years, and was not going to be loading guests or employees anymore, the resort decided to tear down the lift. Many people asked why we would do this, and the truth is that they don't make parts for these kinds of lifts anymore.
