For our family ski trip this year (early April) we were thinking about Alyeska. It would be quite an experience to go to Alaska and provide a chance to do some other activities in addition to skiing (such as flight to Denali, dog sledding, etc).
However, I have a concern that the resort itself does not look that large. We are all advanced skiers with one upper intermediate. Not sure the North Face is suitable for a strong upper intermediate skier. Is there enough resort to keep things interesting for 5 days of skiing? Another thought is to ski Alyeska for 4 days and mix in a CAT trip if the snow is ok.
We ski hard as a family so I do not want us getting bored with a smaller resort. Other options under consideration are Mt Bachelor or the Banff area for that time of year.
I would appreciate any thoughts or insight from anyone who has been to Alyeska.
