Company Description and Location: 

Girdwood is a small Alaskan mountain town that sits amongst lush forest and is surrounded by the peaks of the Chugach Mountain Range. It is conveniently situated only 36 miles (61km) south of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest metropolis with an international airport.   Girdwood is most definitely the place to escape your day to day grind and experience the best of Alaska.

Alyeska Resort is Alaska’s premier year-round destination featuring the 304-room Hotel Alyeska. Located 40 miles from Anchorage. Alyeska Resort sits in the heart of Girdwood, a glacier-carved valley. To the west and north, the mountains of the Chugach State Park provide a stunning backdrop over Alyeska. At 495,000 acres, it is the third largest state park in the US. The summer season brings about a multitude of recreational adventures including hiking and biking right from the hotel and throughout Girdwood Valley.
