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!
Moose snow cover has gone from zero a week ago to 75% today. We will be opening on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving The Moose has received 12″ of heavy snow, with 10% or 1.2″ of water content…that’s good base material and we are scrambling to get it all packed and groomed. Looking forward to another November opening. We hope to see you then.
Thanks for your patience waiting for this report while we plow and groom. We’re on it!
