Overall

4.3

Located within an hour of Anchorage, Alaska's biggest ski area sits at a surprisingly low elevation just under 4,000 ft but with 700 in of annual snowfall, we're not complaining. While there's not a ton of beginner runs, there is enough variety to keep intermediates and above in heaven. In fact, the legendary expert steeps and extreme terrain here makes for the any daredevil's paradise! Best of all, the resort is a perfect warmup for your AK heli-skiing trip!

Steep, great views out to the inlet and beyond. A truly challenging area to ski.
