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!
The holiday season is over, and we’ve had a beautiful ski season so far with 30 days of excellent shredding.
We will return to our normal Friday-Sunday schedule until President’s Day weekend (Feb 19) when we will be open Friday through Monday again.
Our little beginner tow, now dubbed the Bear Cub, has been a hit with first time beginners, tourists and children. It is the perfect tool for assessing whether a person is able to ride the bus to the top, or should practice a while longer. The ability to turn and stop is mandatory for riding our mile+ slopes safely. Children 6 and under and parents helping them can use the lift for free, and bus rides to the top are included with the lift ticket whether one chooses to ski or board down, or simply walk around, enjoy the views, and take another bus back down.
This coming Friday-Sunday we will be open from first bus at 10 through last bus at 3:30. We’ll see you then.
