Don’t look now but our American friends up north in Alaska are having an unreal start to the season.
After multiple Atmospheric Rivers crashed into AK during the month of December, Alyeska Resort is boasting a ridiculously deep base at higher elevations. So far this season, Alyeska has reported 219″ of total snow. Their base is also substantial, measuring approximately 82″ deep.
An Alyeska Ski Patroller says the resort skiing (*especially at night) is great. “Alyeska got a nice New Years present over the last 72 hours with 2-3 feet of snow pushing us up to 81 inches of snow under foot and over 216 for the season to date,” said the patroller.
