Shred the Moose!
Moose Mountain Ski Resort
Visit Moose Mountain
Ski and Snowboard Area
Moose Mountain Ski Resort is interior Alaska’s largest alpine ski and snowboard area. With 750 acres, over a mile wide and a mile long, and 1300 vertical feet, “the Moose” has everything from a short beginner tow at the base lodge to long gentle cruisers and steep, narrow black diamond runs that can challenge the best skiers and boarders.
Moose Mountain has many south facing runs, allowing for sunny skiing above the inversion every day of the season. The average inversion is 20-30 degrees warmer than the flats of the Tanana Valley, and the views are impressive. The prevailing cold weather wind in winter is from the northeast, and our southwest facing runs are fully sheltered with tree cover to the top of the mountain.
Moose Mountain is the only known ski area with the primary lift system a fleet of school buses, capable of 100 skiers per hour per bus. When we need to up the capacity, we add more buses. Enjoy a snack, post a pic of your last run on social media, chat with your friends, unzip your coat. It’s only a 10 minute ride, while a standard speed chairlift would take 13-15 minutes to get you there, unprotected from the elements. After 25 years, we have never had a compelling reason to change, and the buses allow us to remain one of the least expensive ski areas of our size.

Come shred the Moose!
Sunday, April 1. A foot of new on a 100% groomed base!
But…no fooling..Happy Easter. It will be a great final day on the Moose. Temperatures are already in the 20’s at 7 a.m. with a couple inches of new overnight.. Forecast calls for clearing, sunny, and mid 30’s today, a perfect formula for fun.
First bus at 11, last bus at 5, prime time at 1:45 to give you time to enter the season pass drawing at 2 p.m. on the deck at the base lodge.
It’s been a great season, with over 100″ of snow at mid mountain, and a beautifully cool March to preserve the snowpack right to the end.
We know our road will turn on us when the sun and warm weather comes along any day now, so we must say goodbye until next fall. Come celebrate our 58th day on the Moose and keep an eye out for the flash of color marking those easter eggs on your favorite runs!
Congratulations to Kelly, our first season pass holder for the 2018/19 shredding season.
One of you will be joining her SOON.
