Is the Alyeska Resort Haunted?

Tucked away in the snow just outside Anchorage, Alaska, the Alyeska Resort is a skier’s paradise. As it turns out, it’s also a ghost hunter’s paradise. Between accidents on the slope and untoward occurrences in the hotel itself, the resort’s 304 rooms may house more spirits than living guests on any given night. Some of them are more mysterious than others.

In 2001, a stock broker visiting the hotel committed suicide in room 721. Ever since, that room has reported flickering lights and televisions, doors that open and close on their own, and faucets that turn on and off in the middle of the night. The furniture from room 721 was moved to room 723 after the incident, and similar activity has been reported in that room too.

A few floors down, the door to room 515 also opens and closes on its own, and other, less regular paranormal activity has been reported throughout the resort. Perhaps Dr. William Mills, who died in a skiing accident in 2011, is among the hotel’s permanent guests. So too, perhaps, is the man who drunkenly leapt from his third-floor balcony.

Regardless of the source of the Alyeska Resort’s hauntings, it remains one of Alaska’s most haunted hotels, and a great destination for those seeking out a ghostly vacation.

    I stayed there off season as a teenager with my dad and step mom for a conference one of them was involved in for work, we all shared a room with two queen sized beds- it was nice and clean and the hallways were creepy as usual in such big hotels but otherwise the walking paths were beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves.

    A year or so later my step mom told me when everyone was asleep she woke up all of a sudden to me sitting up in bed and talking loudly in a man’s voice saying all kinds of lewd things she still has never told me the details of it and hasn’t brought it up since then, I’ve avoided looking up anything until now that I’m 30 and have hardly even thought of it until recently. The reported ghosts seem like there’s a possibility one or all of them were quite upset when they died. Gives me the heebs…

    I have gone there only once and didn’t stay the night but went in. I live in Alaska btw so I know the backstory of the place and stuff. I walked all of the trails and went on the handtram there which is cool but very high. Right after I had visited there someone fell off the handtram and a man went missing there which is creepy. Maybe they are also trapped souls?

    Beautiful location and hotel but oh boy… Hubby and I went in Nov. 2021. We had dinner in one of the restaurants and I had read about room 721 and 723. I enticed my hubby to go up and have a look . The hotel was only partially occupied and no one seemed to be on the 7th floor. We stood in front of the rooms as they are right next to each other. I kinda of chuckled as my husband said that’s enough let’s go. I decided to say out loud. “This is what it is, this is what it look like” As we walked back towards the elevator and passed the exterior wall of room 721, we heard 3 loud knocks in our ear. Immediately I turned around and asked my husband, “did you do that”. He was pale and had his hands in his pockets. That’s when we knew. Needless to say that elevator couldn’t come fast enough. To satisfy my curiosity I went to the front desk and asked if anybody was occupying those rooms. After a brief search, the employee said “no ma’am”. Ahh ok. Her face told me everything I needed to know. She knew. And I was still rubbing out my goosebumps🤣
