Girdwood History:
Originally called “Glacier City” for the icy behemoths that rim the surrounding mountains, Girdwood began as a gold-mining town in 1900 when James Girdwood hit pay dirt in Crow Creek. The ‘64 Quake sunk the town into Turnagain Arm, and it was moved two miles further inland where it’s nestled today in an idyllic valley next to Alaska’s premier ski area, Mt. Alyeska.

Girdwood was incorporated as a city in 1970 and became part of the Municipality of Anchorage when the Greater Anchorage Area Borough unified with the city of Anchorage in 1975. The town has served as a backdrop for at least two films: The Chechahcos, a 1924 silent film about the Klondike Gold Rush, and Warren Miller's 1997 Snowriders II. Olympic gold and silver medal-winning skier Tommy Moe also hails from Girdwood. Girdwood was shown on CBS on January 20, 2008, as the Finish Line for The Amazing Race 12

Girdwood Skiing:
Mt. Alyeska is part of the Chugach mountain range and has six (6) chair lifts, one (1) high-speed tram, and two Magic Carpets. Chair 6 is a high-speed detachable quad, while Chairs 4, 7 and 3 are normal quads. Chair 1 is the oldest chair lift on the mountain with a 'midpoint' off ramp and leads up to Upper Tram Terminal. Chair 4 ends halfway up the mountain. Chair 1 and the tram end three-quarters of the way up the mountain. Chair 6 goes to the highest lift served point on the mountain at 2800 feet. The interconnected buildings contain the patrol quarters and a new facility housing the upper tram terminal, a quick-service cafeteria, and the Seven Glaciers 4-star restaurant and bar. Alyeska Resort is truly a playground for all levels of skiers and riders. Offering 1,400 skiable acres, 73 named trails and over 650' of snow annually November - May.

Girdwood Hiking:
Want to feel Alaska's rugged beauty in your legs? Hike the legendary Crow Creek Trail, part of the historic Iditarod Trail, and take in great valley views. If you're feeling lucky, take a detour on the way to the trail head and try your hand at gold panning at the historic Crow Creek Mine. Once back on the trail, the four-mile ascent up open hillside to Raven Glacier and shimmering mountain lakes takes 4-7 hours round trip.

For a walk in the woods, try Winner Creek Trail, which winds through Alaska’s northernmost rain forest. In late summer, blueberries abound on this and the Glacier View Trail. Call the ranger station for information. For a leisurely stroll, walk the bike path that connects most of town or rent a bike in Girdwood or at the Resort to pedal six miles out to Bird Point on the newly paved path with sweeping inlet views. After a day outdoors, poke around the town’s eclectic gift shops or try one of the renowned local restaurants.

Girdwood Summer:
Just over an hour’s drive away lies the Kenai River. It’s Alaska’s most famous fishing locale and a turquoise-blue rafting river. Tours can take you on a 2-hour scenic float or a 7-hr Kenai Canyon float. Other operators take you down the challenging whitewater Sixmile River near Hope, a scenic float by Spencer Glacier or through Portage Valley, or jet boat the remote Twenty Mile River.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Get up close and personal with Alaska’s most magnificent animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a wildlife refuge for injured or orphaned creatures, located 10 miles south of Girdwood. With bears, musk ox, deer, and moose among its residents, you’re sure to get a clear photo of these otherwise elusive Alaskans. Girdwood is the perfect launch point for nearby Prince William Sound, the best place in the world to see calving glaciers. You’ll also see marine birds, mammals, and often whales. For an epic Alaskan glacier cruise, go with one of several cruise operators.
