Mount Alyeska Professional Review and Guide
"Visit Mount Alyeska and you’ll find a touch of the Swiss Alps: a chalet, complete with a four-star restaurant, sits halfway up the mountain. You can either reach it the old-fashioned way (on foot), or hitch a lift on the Alyeska Tram and enjoy a graceful ride high above the ski slopes. From the chalet, take a short walk to a small glacier or spend an afternoon climbing Alyeska’s southwestern ridge. Whether you walk or ride up the mountain, the tram (which is free on the way down) makes for a scenic and speedy descent."
--Shane Shepherd & Owen Wozniak, 50 Hikes in Alaska's Chugach State Park (The Mountaineers Books).
