Know Before You Go

As snow begins to fall and our days grow shorter, our thoughts turn to travel plans for the holidays and enjoying our favorite winter activities. It also means that driving conditions on Alaska's roadways are more challenging. Keep your friends and family safe this holiday season by taking some extra time to prepare for winter snow and ice. Whether you're headed to the airport, traveling with a vehicle by ferry or driving to a remote recreation area, avoid incidents and know the road conditions before you go by checking the DOT&PF Winter Season Resources web page. Being prepared will ensure that every outing this season is a fun and memorable one.
