Bundled for convenience and savings, Alyeska Resort Summer Packages have visitors and locals in mind.
June 15, 2012 (Girdwood, Alaska) – The tell-tale signs of summer in Alaska are emerging as the major national parks – Denali, Katmai, Kenai Fjords, and Wrangell-St. Elias – are waking up from their winter hibernation. The white-capped mountain peaks surrounding Alyeska Resort are giving way to verdant green as the lush landscape escapes its winter blanket. One of Alaska’s premier destinations, only 40 minutes from Anchorage Ted Stevens International Airport, Alyeska Resort is making the transformation from steep and deep skiing to the ultimate summer adventure base camp.
Surrounded by the jagged peaks of the Chugach Mountain Range, Alyeska Resort is located in the northernmost coastal temperate rainforest in North America. The two extreme natural phenomena create a truly Alaskan landscape where mountains meet water’s edge. In this lush setting, guests of Alyeska Resort can indulge in resort luxury while exploring the great Alaska wilderness. The Hotel Alyeska’s featured amenities, including the saltwater pool, on-property full-service spa and select restaurants, keep guests entertained and relaxed as they explore the great state of Alaska. There are a number of nature trails for hiking and biking that start right from the resort’s courtyard.
