I lived and worked at Alyeska (lift crew) in the early 90's. Alyeska Resort is the only ski resort in the U.S. with an ocean view. Ok, somedays the conditions are variable. And you could arrive a beginer and leave intermediate skiier thanks to variable conditions. When the Glacier Bowl is open, untracked fresh powder awaits you. Also, when the High Traverse is open, its steep and deep. And the North Face below the tram can be awesome. A beginer can enjoy chair 3 and will find the ride on chair 1 memorable. There's 1,000 acres of skiing on the right days. Expert skiiers will find Alyeska challenging and rewarding. If your looking for a 3 mile groomed run called "Easy Street", go to Vermont...
