The Bore Tide Grand Opening


We are honored having been invited to Alyeska Resort’s recent VIP event, a grand opening celebration of their new Bore Tide Deli & Bar.


A BIG thanks to all of our good friends at Alyeska for having us down. We certainly enjoyed hanging out on top of a mountain, enjoying the panoramic views and fabulous food with all of our tourism partners.



Dishing up deli sandwiches stacked with Boar’s Head meats and cheeses, the dining venue is a casual, self-serve eatery. At the bar you’ll find similar dining choices as well as several craft brews on tap. We sampled the IPA from Denali Brewing Co. and let’s just say, our 2 drink tickets did not go to waste.

With a lodge-like feel yet complete with modern touches, the designers certainly spared no expense to detail. If you’ve visited in past years (formerly the Glacier Express Cafe), you’ll be delightfully impressed with their extreme mountaintop makeover. From exposed wood beams and river rock bling to cozy seating, it’s now a sophisticated spot to sip a glass of wine while overlooking views of several hanging glaciers, jagged peaks and the inlet below.



The ribbon has been cut and in ceremonious style. Appropriately timed, the sun set behind adjacent mountain peaks and cast a warm glow across the wooden beams, shimmering steel and onlookers faces. As a local Alaskan company, we were proud to be there to share this magical moment.



Grab a seat at a cozy indoor booth and gaze out picture windows. Or catch a glimpse of the actual “Bore Tide” while soaking up sunshine on the wrap-around deck. You can also explore nearby mountaintop hiking trails. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. Bear, moose and eagles all frequent the area.

Bring your binoculars…every meal comes with a complimentary million-dollar view!


If you’re the more adventurous type, you can also take the scenic route (North Face trail) up and then glide back down on the 6-minute aerial tramway. Either way, the sights are unparalleled.


Make note of this excellent hotspot to grab a comforting bowl of soup and a steaming latte on a crisp autumn afternoon. Arrange in advance with us or purchase a dine & ride ticket directly at the tram window.


Either way, we recommend popping in to the Bore Tide on your way down the Kenai Peninsula, spending a night or two at the Resort, or driving down from Anchorage to catch the sunset. We assure you it’s one of the most memorable ways to connect with adventure.
