This is a great slope to start on, but you outgrow the hill eventually. There hasn't been a whole lot of snow there latley, and there are only a few runs open. It's still fun to go and it's more convenient than driving to Alyeska...More

Great place to learn how to ski since it's not usually really crowded. The small hill is a little icier than other spots you can go but it's a nice height and offers good deals for rentals and a small lodge to warm up in.

Beautiful when it's snowy or in the summer. Good place for a beginner to learn to ski or if you just want to spend a few hours snow boarding

Hilltops biggest strength is its location right in Anchorage, its facilites are pretty good too. But it is to damn flat, and short especially for snow boarding. Here in Alaska we have the best mountains in the world, so this place does not dazzle.

It is great fun for all ages. And it is right there so the travel time in minor. If you are a great skier it is not for you but if you want to get outside for a while it is perfect.

A must for any visitor! Sled down a mountain at least one time in your life! It's wonderful, exhillerating and scary too! My brother and I went down and I was in front, we veered away from the cliff to end up in trees. The...More
