Alyeska Closes for the Summer
96 inches of snow fell at Alyeska in May
GIRDWOOD - It's been a fantastic season for skiers and snow boarders at Alyeska.
The month of May saw 96 inches added to an already great snow fall.
"Not only 962 inches of snow for the season since October 1, but the quality of the snow has been spectacular and now we are still sitting on 156 inches of snow at the top of Chair 6 - that's 13 feet,” said Brian Burnett.
“We're expecting it to take a little longer for this monster snow pack to melt up high, but we expect to be able to open to lift-access mountain biking on July 6.”
