Fun ride

The tram ride was fun and the view at the top is amazing. I will definitely ride the tram again just for the scenic view!

The tram at Alyeska takes you above the treetops to the top of the mountain, where a hot lunch and great hiking and exploring awaits you in the summer.

Love taking the team for the views and to visit Seven Glaciers restaurant for dinner. Would highly recommend you buy a ticket and go to the top for the views!

Take a quick trip up the mountain. Really good views of whole area. Fun to watch skiers and snowboarders in winter. Bet it would also be nice in the summer. Leaves every 30 minutes

We hiked up as a group. We spent some time enjoying beverages at the mountain and some snacks. If you walk up, you can take the tram down for free. It is a nice trip down, very scenic.

I accidentally left this review on the hotel when the tram ride is really what I wanetd. While the 50 or so minute drive on the scenic biway from Anchorage to Girdwood was amazing (Beluga Point, the old Gold Mine, the scenic photo stops every quarter mile) the final destination did not live up to the hype. Few things to... More

My wife and I rode the Alyeska Tram several times and it was a very nice experience. The views were incredible. The Tram easily carries 50 people or more up the mountain for either skiing or to visit the Seven Glaciers Restaurant. It was a wonderful experience.

We took the tram to eat at the Three Glaciers restaurant. Even though it was winter and cold it was still worth the trip to the top along with the skiers.

This is a must do if you are anywhere near Anchorage. You can see 7 glaciers from the top. The view is spectacular.
