Are there a lot of great winter activities in Alaska?
There are so many wonderful winter activities in our great state! There are so many fun ways to get out and enjoy the cold weather. Try your hand at dog sledding, or bundle up and set an extremely early morning alarm to go hunt the aurora borealis. There is tons of backcountry exploring to do, including snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and backcountry downhill and snowboarding. Go ice climbing, ice skate on frozen lakes or rivers, or even tube down the snow tubing parks we have. There’s also fabulous ice fishing to be had on our great lakes. We have a number of ski resorts, including the prestigious Alyeska Resort, located in the northern most temperate rainforest in America. This resort gets hundreds of inches of fresh powder each year. We even have an internationally famous ice carving festival up in Fairbanks! Winter in Alaska provides endless opportunities to enjoy the cold weather and the beautiful snow.
How long is winter in Alaska?
Winter in Alaska is pretty long. Depending on where you are in the state, you can expect it to set in during late October, and last until late March. You’ll have at least a solid 5 months of freezing temperatures, unless you’re in the more moderate coastal areas of the state. You may also run into a late winter, and still have snowfall through April. Some mountain top areas still see snow into June!
