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... read more

He have told us brief history of this little hill and also future of his investments. I'm hoping that he will get green ligt for expansion from the... More

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 on weekdays.

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

Not a fancy one, but this will serve you right if you want to ski/snowboard. Small chalet & parking area, be there early..otherwise difficult to get a parking spot & seating spot in the chalet. Not so many trails to try, but I like the huge half pipe they have there.

This ski area is located on the immediate outskirts of Anchorage. It is an easy to moderately easy ski hill. They have one chairlift with services three or four runs on the hill. It’s a great place to learn to ski or ski with someone who is learning to ski. The staff in the lodge and the lift ops were... More

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 smacking of the trees on my head knocked me out cold, so my brother had... More
