The whole state's had a really bad (to nonexistent) early season this year. I was hiking around up at Thompson Pass yesterday and we didn't even need snowshoes. We should have been riding for two months by now. The snow just started last night though, and is supposed to continue throughout this next week at least. I wouldn't personally spend a bunch of money to come up here in the next month or so (low snow plus really short days!). I'm going to Hawaii for two weeks, and I'm hoping it's killer by the time I get back. For anyone coming up from outside AK I'd pretty much always recommend February through April for more daylight, better weather, and a deeper snowpack.
