Enjoy your Stay

The Alaska Psychiatric Association CME Conference will return to the Alyeska Resort in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska, for our 26th annual conference.

Getting Here

The Alyeska Resort is located just 40 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska. Convenient access is available at the modern Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

From the airport, take the scenic Seward Highway heading south. The Seward Highway was voted America's Most Outstanding Scenic Byway by Scenic America, a national conservation organization, in 1995 and by the US Department of Transportation in 2000.

The Seward Highway follows along the Turnagain Arm with many interpretative rest stops and view points. Depending on the season, it is not unusual to spot beluga whales or dall sheep from your car window. Take the highway and look for signs to Girdwood, the home of Alyeska Resort. At the Tesoro Gas Station, take a left-hand turn and follow the Alyeska Highway for three miles. You will come to a "T" intersection - turn left and go one mile for The Hotel Alyeska.
