Its snow covered scenery may appear peaceful at first, but during winter Mount Alyeska comes alive with snow bunnies making the most of the resort's 73 runs within relatively untouched terrain. Natural snow in Alyska is abundant. Each year 1,600 cm worth of snow covers the mountain - the highest recorded snowfall in North America. When guests aren't enjoying heli-skiing and dog sledding, Mount Alyska's natural beauty provides a range of entertainment options including glacier tours, bear watching and Northern Lights viewing.
