Winter in Alaska

As the last of the leaves fall from the trees and the first snow caps the mountain peaks, Alaska and her residents start to make the transition to winter. Winter in Alaska isn't for everyone, but for those who enjoy their winter sports and a sense of adventure there are still a variety of activities to choose from. As the snow blankets the landscape, the dark nights show off dazzling displays of stars and the spectacular aurora borealis. The ferries operate year-round providing access to some of Alaska best winter recreation areas, so grab a warm jacket and experience the true winter wonderland, which is Alaska.
