History of Mt. Eyak Ski Area in Cordova Alaska

Mt. Eyak operates a 1939 vintage American Steel and Wire single chairlift. This lift was brought to Cordova, Alaska from Sun Valley, Idaho. First installed in Sun Valley, on Mt. Baldy's Christmas Ridge, it was decommissioned in 1969. In 1974 this lift was moved to Cordova, Alaska and installed above town on the southern flanks of Mt. Eyak. with a length of 1800 feet and a vertical rise of 966 feet it was operated in its original configuration until 1986 when the original haul rope was replaced and new Riblet grips were installed. in 1988 an upgrade was started, with the drive beiing reconfigured from the top to the bottom. A new hydraulic drive, new diesel auxiliary, new caliper brakes, and new control wiring were installed. In 1998 a new handle tow was installed to replace the home built rope tow, which had served beginners in Cordova since the early sixties.

Mt. Eyak Skia Area was operated by the City of Cordova until 1988 at which time the Sheridan Ski Club took over operations through a cooperative agreement with the City. The Sheridan Alpine Association a.k.a. the Sheridan Ski Club is a board run non- profit corporation located in the City of Cordova at P.O. Box 2446, Cordova, Alaska.
