Falling snow in Alaska

Are There Really 50 Words for Snow?

Year round, Alaska’s winters inspire curiosity from visitors. It’s frequent that I’m asked how often it snows, or how much snow I’ve seen at once. Alaska is a winter paradise for winter activities, like skiing, snowshoeing and dog mushing.

Sledding – Lighthearted Winter Fun

For skiers and snowboarders, Alaska can be exotic, exciting and enticing. Our beloved Alyeska Resort in Girdwood offers world-class slopes and has hosted the US Alpine Championships twice in the last decade. Locals enjoy local hills situated throughout town and even groomed trails for cross country skiing.
