Alyeska Aerial TramAlyeska Aerial Tram

The Alyeska Aerial Tram is a three-to-seven minute scenic ride from The Hotel Alyeska to 2,300 ft in elevation and the top of Mt. Alyeska. From the Tram, you can see miles in all directions – including views of the Turnagain Arm, up to seven “hanging” glaciers and endless peaks deep into the Chugach Mountain range. Don’t forget to look down! In the summer months, moose and bear sightings are common on our aerial tram rides, too.

At the Upper Tram Terminal, there is an observation deck providing even more breath-taking panoramic views of majestic mountains, hanging glaciers, sparkling streams, towering spruce, and an array of wildlife. Conde Nast Traveler rated Alyeska ~ "Best view of any U.S. ski resort." The observation deck is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch or beautiful evening sunset. Telescopes are also available along the deck. In the summer months, you can also enjoy exploring, berry picking, watching the paragliders launch, and even hike on a glacier.

Tram Facts
The Alyeska Tramway, designed by Von Roll Tramways, Inc. of Switzerland, has a regenerative drive system. AC power is converted to DC, allowing the tram to operate at varied speeds – slow for scenic rides and fast for powder days.

In the winter, the tram operates at full speed. In the summer, the tram is operated at half-speed, allowing ample time to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and to spot wildlife. The tram operates two cars on a counterweight system -- as one car goes up the other car comes down.

Tram Stats

  • Maximum Speed: 26 miles per hour (42 kilometers per hour)
  • Average Time: 4 minutes in the winter and up to 7 minutes in the summer
  • Capacity: Each of the two cars holds a maximum of 60 persons. The maximum in the winter is 800 persons per hour.
  • Elevation Lower Tram Terminal: 306 feet (93 meters)
  • Upper Tram Terminal: 2,334 feet (711 meters)
  • Vertical Rise: 2,025 feet (617 meters)
  • Length of Span: 3,869 feet (1179 meters)
