The View From This Alaska Restaurant Is One Of The Most Beautiful You’ve Ever Seen
The Seven Glaciers is one of Alaska’s most elegant restaurants, and the view is certainly incredible. High up in the Chugach mountains in Girdwood, the Alyeska Resort is one of the world’s best ski destinations. In the summer, the mountains offer endless hiking opportunities and berry picking. Any time of year, you are bound to work up an appetite. The Seven Glaciers offers truly gourmet dining with the kind of killer views found only in Alaska.
To get to the dining room, you must take the tram up the mountain at Alyeska. The tram zooms up for a 3-7 minute scenic cruise up 2300 feet to the top of Mount Alyeska.
The dining room is perched on the mountain, surrounded by windows. From every seat in the house, there is a gorgeous view of one, or more, of the seven glaciers and ocean views.
The endless perfect powder is what brings all the skiers and snowboarders to the resort, and the view from October to April. The mountains look great in a fresh coat of white snow.
