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. Much of Moose Mountain ski and snowboard terrain is intermediate and advanced. We also have a short beginner lift to enjoy the gentler terrain near the Base Lodge.

Come shred the Moose!
Saturday, Dec. 15 Massive inversion this a.m. Nearly 20 degrees warmer on top than in town. At 7:30 a.m. it’s snowing, with a trace of new so far, 8 below at the lodge, 7 above at mid and 10 above on top.
First bus at 10, last bus 2:45. $5 off if it’s still below zero when you buy your ticket. Or…prime time is at 12:30 for $5 off.
We shouldn’t have to say this, but there are no dogs allowed on the bus or the mountain during open hours. It is a safety issue for animals and shredders.
Fresh groomers today include Solar Coaster, Sundance, Shreds, Weasel, Otter, Bear Ridge, Bear Braids, Sister Bear, Way Bear and Lost Bear.
