Alyeska Resort Renovates and Unveils New Black Diamond Club Suites and Amenities for January 2024
Inviting guests to experience luxury on the threshold of adventure year-round
Girdwood, Alaska (September 06, 2023): As part of continued investment in its Alaska footprint, Pomeroy Lodging has completed the first major room renovation for its Alyeska Resort, debuting the new Black Diamond Club in January 2024. This new luxury offering will provide premium accommodations, services, and amenities exclusive to the resort’s 8th-floor guests. Since purchasing the resort in 2018, Pomeroy Lodging has made key investments and hires to evolve and enhance its mountain and hospitality experience, including the addition of Nordic Spa in September 2022 and Forte Italian Restaurant. Meanwhile, the Black Diamond Club opens as Alyeska Resort prepares for an exciting year of new mountain experiences, such as the July launch of its new adventure activity, Veilbreaker Skybridges, and joining Ikon Pass as the first mountain to be offered in Alaska with passes starting this winter.
The new Black Diamond Club (BDC) takes over the resort’s top floor accessible only to guests with keycard access, offering privacy and exclusivity. The renovation includes 36 newly appointed rooms with styles ranging from the 325 sq. ft. club rooms to a 1,971 sq. ft. glacier presidential suite each outfitted with 50-inch smart screen television, Nespresso machine, Dyson hair dryer, luxury jersey robes and slippers, bathroom amenities by Bamford, luxury linens and a pillow menu to cater to individual sleep style. The BDC’s exclusive lounge offers the resort’s most premium views with vistas of its surrounding glaciers and Chugach mountains. From here guests have access to a private concierge to arrange daily activities on and off property, as well as a VIP Ski Valet. A dedicated lounge will also extend daily complimentary breakfast and afternoon après cocktails and refreshments exclusive to BDC guests.
“Alyeska’s new Black Diamond Club will be the ultimate home base for those looking to
reach new heights of comfort on their Alaskan adventure. The curated experience will
provide guests with uncompromising levels of service and amenities throughout their stay”
shares Owner, Ryan Pomeroy.
Guests of the Black Diamond Club can also access the hotel’s helipad which allows heli and cat skiers convenient access to the world-famous Chugach Mountain range which covers miles of mountain terrain with alpine bowls, colossal mountain faces, glistening glaciers, sheltered trees, and steep powder skiing. A winter playground for all levels of skiers and riders, Alyeska Resort is located just 40 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska in Chugach State Park, offering glacier-filled views, and Northern Light sightings. In the winter, guests are on the doorstep of 1,610 skiable acres including the longest double black diamond run in North America. The mountain is home to a 60-passenger aerial scenic tram with panoramic views, which leads to its 76 trails, including North America's longest continuous double black diamond run. Known for its wide open bowls, stunning scenery and long top-to-bottom runs for intermediate skiers as well as groomed, tree-lined runs for beginners, Alyeska offers an array of access to its annual snowfall of over 669 inches each year. The mountain resort also features seven dining experiences, including Seven Glaciers, a AAA Four Diamond Award restaurant with unparalleled views overlooking seven hanging glaciers.
Alyeska Resort is the perfect base camp for endless adventure and relaxation. Guests can also enjoy Alaska’s first-ever Nordic Spa, offering a way to disconnect to reconnect and experience a 50,000 sq. ft series of outdoor hot and cold Hydrotherapy pools, massage treatments, and wellness offerings. The traditions of Nordic spas provide great health benefits which include soothing sore muscles, creating a stronger immune system, reducing inflammation, and releasing endorphins. The experience includes cold water plunges and waterfalls, aromatherapy-infused steam rooms, a Halotherapy Signature sauna, Finnish sauna, and an exfoliation cabin featuring Alaskan sea salt, all connected by a heated pathway.
Prices for the Black Diamond Club for the 2023/2024 ski season start at $699 for a suite and $3,499 for the presidential suite.
