We are not from here, but the people that are have been telling us that this is not normal weather. This article says that “Anchorage is poised to see the breaking of a weather record that has stood for more than half a century, after more than a month without significant snowfall.”
We bought skis and even got to use them once or twice. That was it. Somehow, Alyeska has gotten over 500″ of snow. The base of the resort is mostly dirt and mud though. Currently, there are many cloud free days. With higher temperatures, we are out hiking in places that we didn’t think we would be until later in the year.The lingering sunsets have been quite incredible. Even with a little Instagram editing.
