ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Alyeska Resort announced Wednesday morning it will close its ski area for the remainder of the winter season effectively immediately.
The resort says the closure is a direct response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“As of today, March 18, 2020, all Alyeska Resort mountain operations, including lifts, aerial tramway, rentals, Mountain Learning Center and restaurants will be closed," Alyeska said in a statement Wednesday. "Our decision to close the resort was not easily made but we feel these measures are necessary out of concern for the health and safety of our community, guests, employees, and the surrounding communities of Southcentral Alaska.”
The Hotel Alyeska is currently still open.
Alyesak Resort has also closed all dine-in restaurants until March 31. It says you can order food to go from the Aurora Bar & Grill, Carve and Tramway Café.
