Mountain Hosts - Skiing and Snowboarding Trail Tours

vesna_hostThere is nothing like local knowledge of a resort to get the best out of the snow conditions and ensure that you waste no time in finding the best terrain on the mountain. Our Mountain  Hosts are ready to orient you around the resort and give you a helping hand with whatever you might need.

Complimentary Mountain Tours
Alyeska Mountain Hosts offer free daily Mountain Tours of the mountain to help you get acquainted with the terrain, trails and layout of Alyeska Resort. Our Mountain Hosts will introcuce you to the ski area via main trails and based on your ability, needs and the current conditions will show you the best way to navigate the mountain, pointing out the resort facilities, mountains, glaciers and current events happening at the resort. They can also let you know about other activities offered in Girdwood. The Mountain Tours last approximately two hours. Meet outside the Tram Ticket Office on the 2nd floor of The Hotel Alyeska at 11 am or 1 pm. We suggest you arrange the tour in advance through the Tram Ticket Office, Concierge or contact the hosts directly. For current mountain conditions and lift status, call the SKI-SNOW hotline (907-754-7669) or check the Snow Report.
