Summer Dog Sledding

An 8 mile journey in our open air Pinzgauers take you on the historical Iditarod trail where the mountains open up to one of the most scenic landscapes in all of Alaska.

Here you will meet one of our mushers  and their amazing sled dogs, observe dog handling techniques, and interact with the dogs that ran the Iditarod.Feel the raw power of these sled dogs as you ride through trails high up in the mountains. The sled dogs respond to the musher’s commands as a whole, moving and navigating as if they were of one mind. It’s a sight to see, and an experience you will never forget!

After your cart ride, you will visit our beautiful puppy pavilion. This is your chance to cuddle and play with future Iditarod champions in their cutest and cuddliest phase. If you thought the sled dogs were cute, the puppies will surely melt your heart. You can snuggle with your favorite puppy for a great picture.

Check out Iditarod memorabilia including racing sled, trophies, and all the gear and warm clothing that he needs to survive in temperatures of 40-60 below while racing over a thousand miles in unforgiving conditions. There is a reason it’s called “The Last Great Race”!

When it’s time to say goodbye to the puppies, we will take you back to Girdwood with your big smiles and a lot of photos.

Ski & Snowboarding

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.
