View the splendor of Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Range from the top of Mt. Alyeska. Located 45 miles south of Anchorage at the Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood, the seven-minute aerial tram ride will take you 2,300 feet above the valley floor to the Glacier Tram Terminal. Facilities on the upper mountain include the Glacier Express Cafe, restrooms, observation platform with telescopes, and the four-star Seven Glaciers fine dining experience. The viewing deck provides breath taking panoramic views of majestic mountains, hanging glaciers, sparkling streams, towering spruce, and an array of wildlife. While on the mountain enjoy hiking, exploring, berry picking or just relax and admire the view. The Alyeska Tramway, designed by Von Roll Tramways, Inc. of Switzerland, operates two cars on a counterweight system - as one car goes up the other car comes down. During the Summer season, the Tram is operated at half speed, allowing ample time to enjoy the natural beauty of Alyeska.
