Alyeska at a Glance

Alyeska at a Glance

By Bayne Salmon
Alyeska Resort

Summer is over, but don’t worry, there’s still some fun and good times to be had at Alyeska. Small details begin to emerge as we make our way into Alaska’s autumn. Stars begin to twinkle in the newly darkened sky. We all stop sleeping with the windows open, and the vibrant colors of yellow and amber begin to transform the scenic commute along Seward Hwy.

Fall is a great time to get outside, relax and enjoy our surroundings. One of the best things to enjoy is Alyeska Resort’s annual Oktoberfest celebration. This year we’ll be holding the festival, celebrating Bavarian culture and flowing pints of beer, at the Sitzmark Bar & Grill. Entry is free, there is delicious beer and authentic food. To top it off, local Ompah music is played throughout the afternoon and into the evening. What better way to welcome the cooler temps and approach of winter?

Held over two weekends (Sept. 20-21, Sept. 27-28), the Sitzmark will be transformed into a Bavarian Bierhaus where friends can meet, eat and commence the merry-making! The Hotel Alyeska will be offering great hotel packages that include a night stay, a souvenir stein, and the first beer on the house. To book the package, please call the reservations team at (907) 754-2111 or visit The full music schedule below.
