Skiing Alaska is a unique experience. It’s remote. It’s big. And it’s snowy. Alyeska Resort gets 16.5 meters of snow per year on average. And inland heli operations 20 to 25 meters.
Alyeska is the biggest of the Alaska resorts, and has a vertical of 2,500 feet, but what the state is known for is heli-skiing. And it has that in abundance.
If you’re planning to ski Alaska, be aware some shut down for January, due to the temperatures. So call ahead.
