KENAI FJORDS NATIONAL PARK

Established in 1980 and containing the Harding Icefield, one of the largest in the United States, Kenai is famed for its numerous fjords which leave travellers spellbound at the beauty. A tour of the fjords guided by National Park Rangers will allow the visitor to observe a multitude of marine life and land based mammals such as sea lions, porpoises, black bear and orcas.

DENALI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE

Established in 1917 and totalling over 4.7 million acres (bigger than New Hampshire!), the national park gets its name for the centerpiece, Denali Mountain, the highest in North America. Originally named Mount McKinley National Park, the mountain and park were renamed Denali (“the high one” in the native Athabaskan language) in 2015 by President Obama. Grizzly bears, black bears, wolf packs and more make Denali home, creating a natural wonder known the world over for its pristine landscapes and unspoiled ecosystems.

THE WRANGELL-ST. ELIAS NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE

The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest area managed by the national park service in the United States, totalling 13.1 million acres, as much as six Yellowstone National Parks. Major sites include Mount Saint Elias– second highest in North America, Malaspina Glacier– the largest piedmont glacier in North America and Nabesna Glacier– the world’s longest valley glacier. As well, numerous abandoned mines and mills create a National Historic Landmark district.

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.
