Tailgate Alaska is a 10-day-long festival, held each year (current dates: April 3 – 12, 2015) in a purpose-built parking lot in the heart of Alaska's famous Chugach Mountain Range.
The goal of Tailgate Alaska is to make riding the best mountains and conditions on earth practical, affordable and safe for people who dream of riding the biggest and the best.
Going into its eighth year, Tailgate Alaska has become the conduit to introduce thousands of riders to Alaska. The festival runs 10 days to compensate for variable weather and to ensure there's enough time for good riding. Being in the heart of Thompson Pass, it offers zero-approach access to amazing peaks.
Tailgate Alaska is the opportunity to live out your skiing and snowboarding dreams.
