Alaska has surprisingly few lift-serviced ski resorts but Alyeska kills it. God-like ocean views, some interesting steeps and a mid-mountain that's like a skatepark tilted on its side. Plus, where else is "first chair" @ 10:30 am?! Buy some Xtra Tuff boots since any (rare) woman you pick up might not take you seriously if you're wearing anything else and/or can't field strip an AR-15.
