Well, we now have that white stuff on the ground called “SNOW” and more is forecast for this weekend . It is a beautiful time in Alaska with lots of winter activities. Downhill skiing and snowboarding on several slopes around the Anchorage area and Alyeska Resort in Girdwood. Outside ice skating at Winchester Lagoon will soon be open or there is inside ice skating at the Dimond Mall. Sledding as soon as we get a little more snow. I am sure that is around the corner, with Anchorage having a record snow fall last year. The same with dog sled rides and snowmobile riding.
There are lots of beautiful drives by car, as well. Talkeetna is just 2 ½ hour’s drive from Anchorage where you can take a airplane flight around Mt. McKinley. Or how about down the Seward Highway and check out our little fishing and harbor town of Seward.
Most Bed and Breakfasts are open with winter rates. Come see what Alaska is all about in the winter months.
