Mt. Eyak Ski Area operates from December through April on weekends, holidays and powder days.
“Ski Hill” as it is locally called, operates one of two remaining single chairlifts in North America. With a vertical rise of 960 feet, this lift serves three main runs with countless shots through trees and glades encompassing an area of over 100+ acres. The lift also provides access to backcountry on the upper slopes of Mt. Eyak. A rope tow serves a beginner slope with a length of 300’ and a vertical rise of 50’. Amenities include a full service rental shop and food service.
The historic single chairlift was first installed in 1936 at Sun Valley Idaho. In 1974 the lift was purchased and moved to Cordova. It was reinstalled above town on the southern slopes of Mt. Eyak through the efforts of the local ski club, City of Cordova, United States Coast Guard, United States Forest Service, Army Air Guard, Sea-Land, Alaska Department of Fish and Game and many local volunteers.
Truly a community resource, Ski Hill is operated and maintained by Sheridan Alpine Association, a local non-profit group of volunteers and a small seasonal staff.
For non-skiers, a hiking trail starts at the base area and sees thousands of visits annually by locals and visitors alike.
