The Hotel Alyeska might be sleeping right now, as the resort is in the midst of its regular season closure, but much activity is in the wings. As soon as the doors reopen on Nov. 21, the resort will hit the ground running with holiday cheer and a new music line up.
If you haven’t hit up the seasonal Pond Steakhouse restaurant yet, you are going to want to get your family over there before it closes Dec. 1. This is a great place to take the family for dinner. It is open Fri.-Sat. from 5 p.m.–10 p.m. Menu options include Filet Mignon, New York Strip or Prime Rib paired with the sauce & side of your choice. The expansive salad bar and selection of appetizers offer a large variety. Remember, kids eat free, per paying adult.
The Spa at Alyeska is also introducing something new to its repertoire, an amazing new line of CBD treatments from Mary’s Nutritional. The CBD oils will be offered as an add-on treatment for massages. The Spa at Alyeska hasalso rolled out a new message, the Girdwood Chill.
