The forecast looks to be cooling over the next couple of days! Over the last 72 hours we have received 27" of fresh snow at the top. Alyeska Ski Resort will remain closed until Friday. We are scheduled to re-open the lifts and the Tram for skiing & riding on Friday, Dec. 19th at 10:30am. Conditions on the mountain are improving with every storm pulse rolling through. We are still experiencing great winter conditions at the top of the mountain. Patrol, Groomers & Snow makers will be focused on opening more terrain, improving the trail conditions at mid-mountain and extending snowmaking further down the mountain. We ask all of our winter fans to make sure snow is at the top of their Christmas wish list. As always, Winter weather will return and we will open more of the mountain before your know it, so please stay tuned for updates. We are updating the Snow Report and the SKI SNOW hotline (754-7669) daily.
