“The Alyeska Resort Aerial Tram is one of the most incredible experiences you can have in Alaska and its perfect for lazy travellers. No need to get hiking or skiing, least not if you don’t want to, head to the Alyeska Resort and ride the aerial tramway to the top of Mt. Alyeska. Look up, look down, look all around for the Alyeska Resort Aerial Tram offers unrivaled panoramic views of the imposing mountain peaks and densely vegetated valley below. You can take a few snapshots at the top and come back down, drop into the Alyeska Resort fine dining restaurant or hit the ski slopes. ”
