Ring in 2017 at Alyeska Resort! There's no better way to celebrate than on the slopes.

An Alyeska tradition! The Torchlight Parade consists of volunteer skiers and snowboarders in a procession down the slope creating a stunning visual effect. Immediately following, fireworks will illuminate the sky for a finale show. This event is free and open to the public. The best viewing is at the Daylodge base area.

Participants include: Alyeska Ski Club, Big Alaska Snowboard Club, Challenge Alaska and Alyeska employees. Participants must be 18 years or older, strong advanced/expert level skier/rider, and poles are not allowed.  Please wear older outerwear and eye protection as damage may occur from torches.
