Alyeska at a Glance
By Shannon Markley
Special to the Glacier City Gazette
With the daylight hours shrinking, fall leaves filling the streets, the early morning frost and a full moon coming into view on the 15th, it just feels like Halloween is in the air. Join us at the Sitzmark this year for the return of the popular, all-female Led Zeppelin cover band LEZ ZEPPELIN! Get dressed up in most creative and creepy of costumes and join us for a rockin’ time at the Sitzmark with this incredible New York City-based tribute band which have gained worldwide critical acclaim for the musicianship, passion and gender-bending audacity they bring to the music of Led Zeppelin.
Tickets for the show are available at TheSitzmark.com or pair it up with a Hotel Room Package which includes your night’s stay and tickets for two to the show on either Fri., October 28th or Sat., October 29th. The Halloween Train will also be doing the slow roll on the tracks again this year, though this year the train will run both nights! Visit AlyeskaResort.com or call (907) 754-2111 for availability and reservations.
October also means it’s time to get a little R&R after the summer bustle and before the start of ski season. Come join us for a night away during the month of October where The Hotel Alyeska will be offering the annual PFD special, with rooms starting at $99 between October 10th and October 30th. Treat yourself to a much needed staycation, order some room service and indulge in the heated saltwater pool and Whirlpool.
While enjoying some much needed relaxation, don’t forget to get those legs prepared for the ski season. Join the Spa at Alyeska’s fitness staff in the Daylodge every Wednesday & Sunday at 6 p.m., October 19th – November 20th for Ski Conditioning classes.
