Alyeska Resort is Alaska’s top ski destination and home to Mount Alyeska. With a reputation for ‘Steep and Deep’, acquired from its world’s longest double black diamond run and 650 inches of annual snowfall. With 1,610 skiable acres and 76 named runs, even the skier who has seen it all will be astounded by the terrain and the views.

Alyeska Resort hosts 7 total lifts which take you to a vertical rise of 2,500ft:
2 high-speed detachable quads, 2 fixed quads, 2 magic carpets and a 40-passenger Aerial Tram.


Your Ikon Pass gives you access to a specific number of ski days at 48 destinations across the globe (see or below for more details). Ikon Pass features direct-to-lift technology, so you scan at the base gates and go!

No, with the partnership with Ikon Pass is a separate offering. We encourage all Alyeska season pass holders to review the Ikon program and determine if it’s a good fit.

This is a huge win for skiers and snowboarders, and for our community. We wanted to be able to offer our customers the benefit of a multi-resort pass and joining Ikon Pass allows us to do just that. The Ikon Pass includes premier mountains around the globe, and we are excited to be the newest Ikon Pass mountain destination.

Becoming an Ikon Pass destination means we’ll introduce new adventure seekers to all that Alyeska Resort and Girdwood have to offer!

With increased visitation to Alyeska, we aim to bolster winter tourism to Girdwood and Alaska. This means increased job opportunities, more overnight guests staying in town and subsequently more leisure spending in the local bars, restaurants and shops around our community.

No, there is not an option to upgrade your existing Alyeska season pass. If you would like the additional access of the Ikon Pass, you will have to purchase that separately at We encourage this option for Alaskan skiers who will be traveling out-of-state during the winter months.

Alyeska is still one of the few remaining independently-owned resorts, and we intend to keep it that way! This is a partnership, one that we think is a good fit because Alterra values the individuality of our resort and they fully support our independence.

The truth is the area is growing whether we like it or not and our goal is to manage the growth, so the place, the feel and the vibe don’t change. Being a partner on the Ikon Pass just gives us the opportunity to invite skiers and riders from other places to come enjoy all that is Alyeska.

Parking is part of a longer sustainability plan. We intend to steer Ikon Pass holders to base out of the hotel with deals on winter lodging and access to restaurants and to use our transportation service partners to help manage traffic to Girdwood.

While on the slopes, you will see people using alpine skis, telemark skis, snowboards, and other snow play equipment such as snow skates, snow bikes and adaptive ski gear. You will see skiers of all levels – from beginners enjoying their first day on the slopes to expert skiers with years of experience. It is always your responsibility, regardless of the equipment used or the level of skier that you are, to be courteous to others and to be aware that skiing safely makes the ski slopes safer for all of us.

Alyeska is a large mountain with difficult and dangerous terrain and skiing and riding are dangerous sports.  We do our best to inform guests of the possible hazards associated with snow sports. We do our best to mark hazards and dangerous terrain appropriately. We also actively open and close certain areas of the mountain often due to Snow Safety considerations, ski conditions, or darkness

Our beginner ski zones and high skier traffic areas are important to us and we refer to these areas as “Slow” zones. We label them as such on our trail maps and with signs and banners as you ski through each of these areas. We encourage guests to ‘Go with the Flow’ in these areas, ski only as fast as the skier next to you. Our least favorite part of the job is to be the police on the mountain. We do our best to keep an eye on people skiing around to ensure everyone is skiing safely and within their limits.

Alyeska has set Enforcement Guidelines based on the Skier Responsibility Code and Mountain Safety Concerns for behavior on the mountain. When an individual crosses these lines, we have to step in and be the police, and we have no tolerance for unsafe behavior at Alyeska. We have a relationship with the Department of Natural Resources and due to this relationship we issue DNR citations to individuals in violations of certain rules. In addition to loss of lift privileges and fines we also require all ‘violators’ to take the Mountain Education Test, a tool used to help educate.
