Alyeska Spring Carnival and Slush Cup

Nothing to see here except some Alaskans celebrating spring! The resort takes advantage of the longer daylight and extends the hours for the ski lift operations while also hosting the Slush Cup where those competing dress is crazy costumes and attempt to make it across a 90-foot long pool of freezing water! There are other events throughout the weekend along with live music and more!

Easter Train

Celebrate Easter on the Alaska Railroad! The Easter Train has two different departure times (one at 10 am and one at 3 pm) and both are a 2.5 hour roundtrip affair from Anchorage to Indian along the coastline of the Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm. It is a great activity for the family and we even heard the Easter bunny is going to make an appearance!
