Alyeska Aerial Tram - Review
Mount Alyeska is at an elevation of 2300 feet. That means great views of beautiful Alaskan landscapes at the top. That means you absolutely must take this seven minute tram ride up to the top to the Upper Tram Terminal. The climb is about 2,025 feet. Remember to look down on your way up as it is not uncommon to catch sight wildlife such as bears and deer. Once you’ve reach, seek out the viewing platform. The panorama is ridiculously beautiful - valleys of meadows and spruce trees, glittering rivers, green and white mountains. You can explore the mountain top a little too. In the winter this is a very active skiing area, and there are other attractions such as the Seven Glaciers Restaurant and the Roundhouse museum. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Anchorage itinerary 3 days.

Alyeska Aerial Tram, Anchorage Reviews
Tram personnel don't lie, when the swing is coming, it's coming. It's a short ride "about 5-6 minutes each way", and honestly not too much to remark on. Get to see some good views, and other than that stand in a car on a wire. I believe the tickets can be pricey, but if you are already going to the top for dinner, it's built into what you're buying anyhow. Do the hike and get the free ride down, puts things in a better perspective and you get to see more of what you glide over, plus free ride down.
We hiked up the North face trail and took the tram down for free. It was so much fun!! Not an easy hike but the view was fantastic. Definitely worth a visit from Anchorage.
What a cool way to traverse this mountain. The ride was smooth and quick. It was a little bit scary for those with issues with heights.
Such an amazing place to visit. You get a free tram ride down if you hike up via the North Face trail. At the top they have dining and drinking options. Amazing views year round.
Great views on the mountain. If you want to hike you can hike up and take the tram down at no cost. The tram is 29.00 to buy a pass that would allow you numerous rides on the trail. There is a nice place to sit out and enjoy the scenery.
