Internal Medicine Update for Primary Care

Aug 03, 2024 – Aug 05, 2024

Alaska - Alyeska Resort

Alaska spills over with breathtaking sights you won’t find anywhere else: the crystalline blue of glacier ice, brown bears snatching salmon from a stream, the northern lights dancing overhead, and 20,310 foot tall Denali, the highest peak in North America, to name just a few. Nestled in a lush valley surrounded by mountain peaks, hanging glaciers and spectacular ocean views, Alyeska Resort offers guests luxurious accommodations and convenient access to the magnificent Alaskan wilderness. There is so much to see and do when based at Alyeska Resort. Indeed, the resort offers a plush launching pad for some classic Alaska adventures, all easily accessed on your own or with a little help from the concierge. The front desk can help you set up a wide variety of excursions not far from the hotel, like dogsledding, heli-hiking, day cruises, fishing, and rafting. You could choose, for instance, a guided hike to a glacier, then rope up and learn some basic mountaineering skills. No matter what you choose to do during the day, the hotel makes a fabulous place to rest and recharge afterward. The Seven Glaciers Restaurant, perched atop Mount Alyeska, has a AAA Four Diamond rating, and emphasizes locally sourced seafood, game and produce in its menu—like Kodiak scallops, braised boar, and king crab legs, any of which is nicely finished off with the house dessert, Baked Alyeska.

Additional Travel Information

Airport Information – Alyeska Resort is located just 40 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska in the town of Girdwood. Convenient access is available at the modern Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. From the airport, you can take the scenic Seward Highway heading south. The Seward Highway was voted America’s Most Outstanding Scenic Byway by Scenic America, a national conservation organization, in 1995 and by the US Department of Transportation in 2000. The Seward Highway follows along the Turnagain Arm with many interpretative rest stops and view points. Depending on the season, it is not unusual to spot beluga whales or Dall sheep from your car window. Take the highway and look for signs to Girdwood, the home of Alyeska Resort. You will take a left-hand turn onto Alyeska Highway and continue down the road for three miles. When you come to a “T” intersection – turn left and go one mile for Alyeska Resort. To get to Alyeska Resort’s Daylodge and base area, turn right at the “T”.
