Alaska - Big, Wild, Free... and soon freezing. As autumn descends into the Alaska northland, snow creeps down the mountains leading the way for winter. Believe it or not, winter is the busy season in Alaska. Fly into Ted Steven's Anchorage International Airport on a visit to Anchorage, Alaska's largest City, and the hub for central Alaska. From there take the Glenn Highway northeast to Fairbanks or head south to the Kenai Peninsula via the Seward Highway.
Ski the slopes of Alyeska outside Anchorage, discover winter's Northern Lights in Fairbanks, or drive up to the Menedenahll Glacier outside Juneau - you'll be awed by Alaska's natural wonders. Visit in March for the world famous Iditarod dog sled race, or take to the trails of Denali National Park on a dog mushing tour of your own. Celebrate the season at Fairbanks' Chatanika Days or the Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage - Winter is authentic Alaska.
