Great Summer at Alyeska!

There are only 2 weekends left of lift accessed downhill biking at Alyeska!  Labor day will be the final day of operations.

We had a great crew this summer of experienced lift operators (Top L to R: Brett, Kjetil, Todd, Doug, Middle row is Cheyenne, and Chris and Kate in the front)

We enjoyed quite a bit of good weather for the first 2 months of operations!  There has been some rain lately, but the forecast for this weekend is great.  Pictured here: bikes and bikers getting ready to unload at the top of Ted's Express.

And, of course since this is Alaska, we had occasional wildlife visitors as well.

Beautiful Winter

Alyeska Resort is arguably one of the most scenic ski resorts in the world.  Here is just a sample of the beauty on display in the past few months.
