Bike Rentals & Guided E-Bike Tours

The Girdwood to Bird Point guided e-bike ride is a fantastic way to get out and enjoy the scenery of the Turnagain Arm as well as the serenity of the well-established, paved, Bird to Gird bike path. Our fleet of Kona e-bikes makes riding fun for most ability and fitness levels. These bikes support riders with up to 90% of the workload powered by the electric motor, making covering long distances and concurring hills a breeze.

The route starts at The Hotel Alyeska and continues on for 12 miles to Bird Point, utilizing the Lower Iditarod Trail. The route is mostly flat through forested sections of the Iditarod Trail and the beginning of the Bird to Gird bike path. Riders will gain roughly 500 vertical feet and will be treated to unobstructed views of the Chugach and Kenai Mountains and Turnagain Arm at various pullouts. Our guides are knowledgable about riding and the surrounding areas, making this ride fun as well as educational!

Sign up at the Mountain Concierge located on the second floor of The Hotel Alyeska. Riders must check in at least 30 minutes prior to departure.

Book Your Stay

Hotel Alyeska or Black Diamond Club?

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.
