Alyeska at a Glance
By Bayne Salmon
The mercury has really fallen, and in case you missed that pun, autumn is slipping towards winter. With the first flurries of snow falling in town, many of us are switching our bikes to skis and dreaming of pow. Often, this time of year is one of transition. It’s not quite winter or summer’s end. Indeed, it’s a season of confusion. Should you be confused about what to do for Halloween? Absolutely not!
Dark nights, barren trees, frozen earth and The Jangle Bees! Halloween at Alyeska is always a spooktacular time. For this year’s concert and party, we’ve selected a local rock band from Anchorage, The Jangle Bees. Their music harkens back to a time when twelve-string electric-guitars ruled the airwaves and songs about heartache made you get up and dance the night away. Think you’ve got a great costume this Halloween? Join the party on Oct. 26 at the Sitz! We’ll be holding a costume contest at 9 p.m., and the best male and female costumes will walk out with vouchers for hotel stays. Tickets are moving FAST, so buy yours now! Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the tram ticket office in advance. Tickets can also be added to any Fall Getaway Package at the hotel.
