ABar opens at Alyeska Mountain and Black Diamond Club debuts new suites in June 

Girdwood, Alaska (April 29, 2024): Adventure enthusiasts can now join the list to secure their spot on the highly anticipated Veilbreaker Skybridges at Girdwood’s Alyeska Resort. Opening for its second summer, Veilbreaker Skybridges is suspended 2,500 feet above the valley floor and spanning 600 feet. This 2 - 3 hour-long experience for people of all skill levels, with two bridges suspended over Christmas and New Year’s Chutes. With stunning vistas of Alaska’s wild landscape from harrowing heights, explorers will have a true sense of adventure from the new Veilbreaker Skybridges, which will be available in the summer months from July to September. Hotel guests can also look forward to the opening of the brand-new aBar, a new sports bar in the hotel at the base of the mountain.


Also new for June 2024 is the debut of the Black Diamond Club, a luxury offering of premium accommodations, services, and exclusive amenities. For Black Diamond Club guests, Alyeska Resort will be debuting a new VIP Package that includes a helicopter trip for two, landing on a glacier for a champagne toast. Exclusive, branded water bottles will be provided for guests to fill with glacier water during the trip. For special occasions, guests can bring a photographer to capture the experience. All Black Diamond Club packages and experiences can be booked through the dedicated Black Diamond Club team. Alyeska Resort is the perfect base camp for unique adventures and an opportunity to take in breathtaking wild landscapes, including 2.2 miles of intermediate to advanced hiking trails and guided tours around the resort and mountain. Travelers can experience the breadth and depth of Alaska’s wild beauty and connect with nature in the land of the midnight sun. The resort is conveniently accessible for day trips to the Kenai Peninsula, Whittier, and Anchorage.

The exhilarating Veilbreaker Skybridges experience begins with a tram ride to Alyeska’s Mountain Station, where guests will be met by Expert Mountain Guides who will teach them about mountain safety and all the necessary gear, such as helmets and harnesses, before driving them or leading them on a 30-minute hike to the Skybridge venue. The Mountain Guides will provide guests with life-long skills to conquer stressful moments and offer tools and tips, such as breathing techniques, to help them accomplish the great adventure that awaits them. Offering a bird’s eye view of the majestic Alaska landscape, the Veilbreaker Skybridges provides a truly unique perspective of Turnagain Arm, the Chugach rainforest, and the monumental seven “hanging” glaciers. At the end of the two bridges, guests can share their experiences and enjoy a meal or drink at the mountaintop Bore Tide Deli & Bar before taking the tram back to the resort. 

Located just 40 miles south of Anchorage in Girdwood, Alyeska Resort can easily be reached by a scenic 45-minute drive on the Seward Highway. The Black Diamond Club is the latest offering to debut for guests since Alyeska opened the Veilbreaker Skybridges in July of 2023 and the Alyeska Nordic Soa in September 2022. Its proximity and access to Anchorage make the Veilbreaker Skybridges and Nordic Spa an ideal experience for a day trip or weekend escape.
