    Do you think you’ll ever get a chance to get up to see Alyeska, Eaglecrest or any of the other small ski areas near Anchorage?

    Do you have any information on the Alyeska tram? I can’t even find who the manufacturer was.

    Hey pete, ever plan to get to Alyeska? Looks really interesting.

        Also, the Mt. Eyak ASAW single chair is super cool. If you ever make it up there again, you should be sure to visit Cordova and the single chair.

          Yup. The Eyak single chair lift was originally installed on Bald Mountain Sun Valley in 1939. The old Christmas lift maybe? It was erected at Eyak in 1974.

    Is it possible to suggest places that are missing? There’s a few in Fairbanks, AK, and there’s one missing in Anchorage (Hillberg in JBER). Planning on heading to Hillberg to teach my friend, I don’t know how you get pictures for the posts

      Areas are typically added as he visits them. Pretty much every picture on the site is taken by Peter. So until he visits a place, you probably won’t see it. You can message him and see if you could take the pics for him but not sure if he does that. That being said if you have info that he is missing on a particular lift, let him know and he will most likely update it if that lift is in the database.

    I believe Birch Hill has a chairlift (Fairbanks). 2 base areas, Iceman Falls and Dyea have ski areas, but unclear on the lifts or if public access.

    Does anyone know what happened to Manitoba Mountain? It was supposed to be a mountain with 3 surface tows serving beginners and intermediates and it was supposed to have one of the smallest infrastructure ratios of any ski area. Here are some proposal maps.

    When will he get Skeetawk? Or the ones near Fairbanks?

      There are a lot of resorts in NA, and it’s very expensive and time consuming to visit them all, especially in AK. It takes a while to visit them all.

    Is it just me, or does the old Independence Mine ski area look like a dream come true. Imagine small lift lines and a poma that tows you up to a wide open expanse that is consistently pitched with incredible scenery in the background. Must have been incredible on a pow day. Too bad it closed down or I would have loved to ski here.
