What other major city boasts a world-class alpine resort inside its city limits? Alyeska’s record-breaking annual snowfall, quick tram to the top, relative lack of crowds and long season make it a great ski destination. The views are a bonus. There is serious bowl and double-black skiing here, as well as an old double chair that is one of the longest and slowest chairlift rides (12 minutes) in North America. (That’s Alaska for you.) Much of the skiable terrain is above timberline. Despite the coastal location, the snow is manageably light, and there’s plenty of wide open space for intermediates.
