Gorgeous year round. If you have the stamina to climb the mountain you get a free tram ride down. Truly breathtaking literally and figuratively.

The seven glacier view at sunset is one of our most treasured Alaska memories. Also recommend dinner at the Seven Glaciers Restaurant!!

Easy walk behind Alyeska Hotel. We were staying there in June and even though it was a lovely sunny day and everything was green, when we got to the top there was still thick snow lying everywhere and it was cold! So take a coat!! Smooth ride up and back. You can have a meal at the restaurant at night... More

Don't feel this is good value for money at $25 per person for a 6 minute ride in a crowded standing only tram, thus the ride itself was very ordinary. The views at the top are expansive and enjoyed walking further up the mountain for even better views. Would only consider the ride on a clear, fine day.

Such a fantastic activity for the family. Amazing views and a restaurant on the top to enjoy the views even more. Can't wait to return when there is snow.

The tram runs every 15 minutes, so there isn't a long wait for the ride to the top. Once at the top, I did a little hiking on the trails to get some good pictures. There is also a restaurant and bar as well as a gift shop. The bugs are bad, so be sure to take some bug spray!!

We enjoyed the panoramic views of the surrounding glaciers down into Turnagain Arm. We were fortunate to have a clear day and the vistas were unforgettable. We purchased the lunch along with the tram tickets. The hot soups hit the spot, and the sandwiches were generously sized.

We took the tram at Alyeska last weekend and enjoyed it very much. With it being Fall, there were no skiers yet, but many hikers and people like us there to enjoy the views. The views were spectacular, and I would definitely do it again in summer to see everything in bloom.
