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. Nestled at the base of Mt. 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. And yet this sleepy little town that you can pass through without even realizing it is home to a world-class (if unknown) ski resort.
