Operation Overview

CPG offers the greatest variety of terrain in North America. With terrain including steep spines and ramps, long couloirs and 4,000 vertical foot rollers along with a committed, local guide team to get you there safely, CPG will tailor a mind-blowing trip for almost anyone. With our hospitality partner, Alyeska Resort, and it's amazing terrain and 650 inches of annual snowfall, CPG is a good bet for great skiing no matter what the conditions may bring. CPG runs up to four A-Stars and two snowcats in our 750,000 acres of exclusive terrain. For 2014, we're offering guided ski-touring with a cat bump in some of our local zones. CPG is only 45 minutes from Anchorage International Airport so AK big mountain skiing is closer and more accessible than you might think.

Terrain Overview

With more than 1 million acres of exclusive and non-exclusive terrain available, there is plenty of super steep, modest and easy terrain available for everyone.

The Bottom Line

Range of terrain, skilled guide team, reliability of Alyeska Resort, and accessibility to Anchorage International Airport, all make CPG a unique AK skiing option.
