Review: Alyeska DH race. Soft snow. Good news is the lower mountain should open early this year (that's the rumor!!)

Review: Great, fun downhill single track. The locals work really hard on carving new trails so there is something for everyone. You can rent a bike and armour if you need it and they'll throw in a free lesson / guide at the same time which is a great deal if you're travelling without your bike.

Review: Good riding. Service is the worst. From the sitzmark to the tram employees will make it abundantly obvious that its a privilege for you to be there. I have been a downhill guide in New Zealand, Whistler many times, 5 years in Utah for the riding. Regrettably went to Alyeska 2 times this summer for the same results. Never again for this DH rider.

Review: Really awesome riding and great people. Jumps, drops and berms all very fun. Need more more stuff like this in Alaska! Renting a downhill bike is pretty expensive. Hopefully will be getting my own for next year.
