This is a lovely area with lots of activities year round. There are several great hiking trails, mountain bike trails, and skiing in the winter. The views are magnificent and you can ride the tram to the top of the mountain for beautiful vistas.

You can walk the wildtrail and jump over with a tram over the river, the hike is about 2 hours, fantastic, ask the hotel for options!

We took the sky tram to the top of the resort and had lunch. The food was good but the view was breathtaking. So worth the visit:)

We went for a few days during February school vacation. We've avoided skiing at Tahoe resorts the past few years because of the crowds, and iffy snow. At Alyeska, lift tickets were half the price of big Tahoe resorts and the mountain had far more...More

Right, the train is a nice ride. The winter schedule is limited, so check the Alaska railroad website to see if you can synchronize departure times. It's not super cheap, but neither are your other options...other than... More
