Winter Sports

Northern Lights, Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, Ice Climbing, Ice Fishing

Alaska’s winter season is the perfect playground for winter sports of all types. Winter is the ideal time to spot the northern lights, which can be combined with more active sports for an adrenaline-filled winter break! We’ve got everything from Nordic skiing to alpine skiing, snowshoeing to snowboarding, and ice fishing to ice climbing! Alaskans love getting out in the snow and running, hiking, skiing, and climbing. With a winter which spans October to March, why would you live here otherwise? If you like winter sports, you’ve come to the right place.
