Alyeska Riding

Hey anyone else out there ride Alyeska Alaska. Unfortunately my job kept me way busy most of the winter so I didn't get to go as much as I liked but for the few times I've been up there it was awesome. Just wanted to hear how other peoples experiences up there where. I was lucky enough to get up there when there was fresh powder up there, and I was early enough that not many people road it yet, it was pretty sick.

i learned to ride there!!it was great.instructors are cool, cki patrol is cool, all the staff is cool really.the prices arnt bad either for what you really get.there are quite a few runs, in all variaties, and there is night skiing.the tram is fun, takes ya to the top fast, but the ride there from the lodge sucks, on rental gear anyway.i really loved it, and if i didnt have to move, id still be there.i miss ak, and ill go back eventually in my life.

Yeah I love living in Alaska. I learned to ride at Hatcher pass, its alot closer to where I live than Alyeska is. But as far as prices they aren't bad until you get hungry then you really have to hand out the cash. I payed almost $17 for a burger fries and a drink. Oh well thats not why I go, I go to ride!!!

I ride hatcher pass alot cuz I live in the valley and its a simple drive up there. I usually have to just hit the 2 main runs that every one goes down Paradise and Mile 16. But I like hiking way more. There is some really cool lines to ride up there but you got to hike or snowmachine to get to them

alyeska is in my top five resorts, especially for april riding; killer views, decent in-bounds rock drops (christmas and new year's chutes are fun), cool loc-dogs in girdwood, fun cat tracks to spin off of...good times.

hatcher's pass is fun, also. well worth a cat shred trip for a day or two. we were taken to an area, i believe it was called 'goverment headwall', that had steeper terrain and decent slope aspects (wind lips, mini chutes, cliff bands, etc.).

once you ride in ak, it ruins you...nothing really compares to it (especially, if you get it on bluebird). i always find myself using ak as the litmus test against other places.
