The Manitoba Mountain playground will offer options for all levels of skiers, riders and Nordic enthusiasts. As Alaska’s 8th ski area, Manitoba Mountain will offer skiers and boarders access to 5 times the skiable terrain as any other area in the state. By providing convenient access to a wide variety of terrain, a well-planned layout of surface lifts ensures energy efficiency and minimizes operational costs.
Approximately 1,000 acres of inbounds terrain will cater to all levels of rider, from beginner through advanced. The lift-served vertical drop of 2,596 feet will offer skiing on south and west facing terrain, assuring good light even in the darkest of winter months.
BACKCOUNTRY AND HIKE TO TERRAIN

Just outside the backcountry access gate is some excellent north facing terrain.
Descents of up to 4,400 vertical feet, ending at the Seward Highway, are possible.
