LODGING: The Alyeska Resort in Girdwood
WHERE WE ATE:
The Bore Tide Deli after a short tram ride up the mountain. We purchased a package that came with free tram tickets, otherwise you can purchase tickets that give you credit for a meal at the top. Check the ticket booth for details. The deli serves pretty much what you'd expect - soups, salads, sandwiches.
The Aurora Bar and Grill. Also a restaurant associated with the resort, we've had mixed experiences at here. The first time was so-so, the second time we only went because we couldn't get a reservation at Jack Sprat and we were hungry. It was great. Good food, good service. We left really happy.
WHAT WE DID: We tried to go cross-country skiing on the Winner Creek Trail. This trail is not only in an avalanche zone, it's NOT for beginners. Ha ha! For the time being we'll stick with the Moose Meadows.
