The Fast Approach of Winter in Alaska

Winter in Alaska is on its way! Diminished daylight hours, dropping temperatures, and brief flurries of snow have  begun to illustrate Alaska’s quick transition from its short-lived autumn season to its dynamic winter months. The fast approach of winter in Alaska has made it difficult for some to say goodbye to beautiful fall sunsets and  a milder climate, yet those adventurers who are willing to bundle up welcome the extreme winter conditions of America’s northernmost state.

Alaska typically won’t see its coldest and snowiest time of the year until the months of January and February yet many places have already begun to see light dustings of snow with accumulation in some higher areas. Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is one of these places and has been witnessing the fast approach of winter in Alaska. While the Lodge’s 2015 heli-skiing dates don’t begin until February, the 1.2 million acres of ski terrain in our backyard is quickly transforming into the renowned winter wonderland that hosts roughly 600 inches of snowfall each season. Viewweather.com offers up-to-date weather forecasts for the Tordrillo Mountain Range and allows you to monitor current temperatures and snowfall in the region as it moves deeper into winter’s clutches and closer to the time of the year when you can experience the best heli-skiing in Alaska for yourself.
