These are exciting times at Alyeska Resort. Our crews have been hard at work and we are excited to show-off all the new features.
Chair 6 Chairlift Installation
Alyeska Resort is excited to announce the replacement of the existing Chair 6 with the installation of a new high-speed detachable quad. Construction and installation of the chairlift by Doppelmayr USA Inc. is expected to occur from May 6 through October 31, 2013 at an estimated cost of $6 million.
Servicing high volumes of skiers and riders, the currently existing Chair 6 provides primary lift access to the upper mountain trails at Alyeska Resort and is considered by many to be the heart and soul of Alyeska Ski Resort. Popular skiing and snowboarding runs accessed by Chair 6 include Christmas Chute and the North Face, Silvertip, Trapline, Mighty Mite and High Traverse. The existing chairlift was originally installed in 1988.
