Enjoy skiing and snowboarding in Alaska


If you're like me, you want to have a great time skiing or snowboarding. I'm more into snowboarding, and as quite a few other people, I enjoy going to resorts where there are less people, and the site & # 39 is less commercial. Among the few places which still remain this way, you can count on the Alaska skiing and snowboarding resorts. Most people do not think about going to Alaska because there are so many ski resorts in North America, so why travel so far? This leaves you with open slopes and half empty lift lines.

Let's take a quick look at some of the best ski and snowboarding resorts in Alaska:

Thanks to the southern exposure to the mountains, the area is protected from the prevailing north-easterly winds, and thus receives hours of sun each day. This makes the mountain 20-30 degrees warmer than the nearby city.
