We went only for the Tram and views. The tram was quite quick, but had spectacular views. The museum was more of a gift shop than anything else. With entrees averaging $35+, we decided to go to Chair 5 across the street in the post office in Girdwood that served all 4 of us off less than one entree at Alyeska

We chose to use the Alyeska Resort to accommodate our guests during our wedding weekend and are very thrilled with our experience there. Our room block was for 20 rooms Saturday and Sunday nights (so 40 room/nights total). They upgraded the bride and groom to the bridal suite on the 8th floor, which was gorgeous and appreciated by both of us. I was pleasantly surprised how great the experience was considering that the Alyeska Resort is kind of the only show in town for accommodating a group like ours. The staff was very friendly and we all enjoyed the gym, pool, and sauna. They also were great about passing out our welcome bags that we prepared for our guests. My only constructive comment is that it was a little difficult to get the final count on how many of our room/nights were accounted for at any given time. This was important information for us since we would have been responsible for covering rooms that were not filled up to 90% of our original block (e.g. we had to fill 36 out of 40, so if we only had 34 room/nights filled we would have had to pay for 2). All of the group and wedding coordinators were really great to work with and they made us feel very special as the bride and groom to be. Thanks everyone!

The ride to the top of the mountain is beautiful. All the mountain peeks are visible for miles around. Great opportunity for one of a kind pictures as well. A bit pricey but worth it to see the area in a unique way. Cook Inlet is beautiful from the top of the mountain.

We went here even though ski season is out. The tram to take people up comes and leaves at a regular interval. The view from the top is breathtaking. We bought the ticket inclusive of lunch as it was cheaper if you sum it all up rather than buy the tickets and lunch separately. I could stay up there all day and just soak myself with the beautiful sight it beholds

We just parked here but it looked like a nice place to ski at. We saw a mother bear and two cubs as we were walking into town. We were there for the Forest Fest.
