We took the Alyeska tram to the top of the mountain for a look around Saturday afternoon. Last time we rode it, it was summer and there were about eight of us on the tram. This time we were nestled in with 57 of our new best friends and their ski equipment.
View from the top.
They say the tram fits 60 people comfortably. I think there's some mistaken word usage in that saying.
This is the best of three attempts. Guess we weren't much in the picture taking mood.

Skiers crossing the fence to fetch some getaway mittens and ski poles down the hill.
The ride back down.
There were fewer people on the return trip.
