The Other Alaska

Travel

Tucked away in the Chugach Mountains, Alyeska strikes the ideal balance: big-mountain skiing in a friendly, down-home local.Girdwood, Alaska, population 2,000, is the kind of place where you make friends without trying.

Alyeska, it's so small that if you spend a few days, you keep running into the same people; so small that it didn't have electricity until the late Fifties; so small that the postmaster knows everyone by name.

The Wasatch Powerbirds have been doing very little flying lately.
