The base elevation is 400 feet, rising to 1200 feet at the top of the single lift, for a vertical drop of 800 feet. The annual snowfall averages 350". With approximately 30 different trail options, including a new easy trail down the hill, the area offers something for everyone!

The Mt Eyak Ski Area is operated by Sheridan Alpine Association, a non-profit corporation with a volunteer board in cooperation with the City of Cordova.
We continue to improve Mt. Eyak through ongoing and planned projects. From equipment maintenance and Ski Patrol training to a new trails, none of it would happen without the many volunteers who donate countless hours and money to SAA.
