Bumping this thread b/c I just booked my flight to Anchorage for a business trip on 2/18-19 but am heading down to Alyeska Friday afternoon through Sunday evening (21).
I have stayed at the Alyeska resort once before this past summer (working the same business deal). My wife traveled with me as it was our first trip to AK and we stayed 4 days at the resort exploring the Kenai Peninsula from there. It was pretty awesome, felt like we had the resort to ourselves and it was a really good deal. Needless to say she became very annoyed with me talking about how cool it would be to come back during the winter! I'm thinking that even though I could get much cheaper lodging in Anchorage I should just bite the bullet and stay at the resort again for convenience. Snowolf, do you stay at Alyeska resort or do you make the trip back and forth from Anchorage?
The North Face is pretty extreme, at least it looked like it when it was bare this summer. Super stoked about this trip. Sno, if you have any other helpful hints or tips let me know!
