    Alyeska was lucky that the fire in the parking barn didn’t destroy the terminal, operator house, or chairs. Besides, the new one looks way better than the old one did.

    Wow, I really like that green color on the terminals and lift shacks.

    The chair storage barn looks beautiful.

    This is a very scenic lift. You can see the mountains all around you.

      Surprised the old lift had bubbles and this one does not have wind slats

        Nor does it have footrests.
