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.
