Mountain Upgrades

The 2013/14 ski season will feature a brand new Chair 6 which is currently under construction. Built on the same foot print as the old chair, the new Chair 6 will feature less lift towers and will be a faster ride. As of the 2012/13 ski season, Chair 6 was the oldest high-speed quad in North America at 31 years of age. Having a lift that old poses a problem when ordering replacement parts. Investing in a brand new lift will insure skiers and riders get fresh turns on the upper mountain for years to come!

Ted's Express (Summer 2012)

Alyeska is very excited about the new high-speed quad that will be replacing Chair 4. Ted's Express will be in the identical foot print of the old Chair 4 to minimize construction damage to the mountain. Ted's Express estimated trip time from base to top is 5 minutes, shaving about 10 minutes off per lap giving our skiers and riders more vertical for their buck. Skiers will gain 1,348 vertical feet in elevation over a 4,300 foot distance at a speed of 1,000 feet per minute.

Chair 6 Grading Project (Summer 2012)

Many people have been asking what the excavators are doing on the hill. The answer, making the traffic heavy Chair 6 base area wide and less steep to reduce the risk of accidents. The new grading gives skiers and riders two different routes. Route one will lead people on skier's right side of the trail to the Chair 6 base and lift line where they can jump on the chair for another lap. Route two will steer skiers and riders to the left hand side of the trail and go around the base of Chair 6 so they can head to the lower mountain. This byway will help control skier traffic flow, bottle-necks and lower the risk of skier collision.
