Skiing

Winter in Seward, Alaska

We often get asked what Seward is like in the winter.  The answer is AMAZING! Sure, we have shorter daylight hours checking in at about 5 hours on the shortest day, but those short days lead to incredible light for long sunrises and sunset.

There's so much to do!  Cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, back-country skiing, sledding, heli-skiing, snow machining (snow mobiling to you out of staters), ice skating, kayaking, fishing, you name it.  If it's a winter sport it happens in Seward!

Most people think all the wildlife disappears in the winter, but that's not true with the exception of the Humpback Whales.  We often see tons of birds, sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals and eagles.

Seward is really an amazing place to live in the winter!

Off Season Fun: Ski Season

Summer season is just around the corner, but it is not too late to check in and see what Andrew has been up to this winter! Always the handyman, Andrew spent some time working on his roofing and farming skills before taking some time to explore Yosemite, southern Utah, the famous "wave" in Arizona, and Owens Valley. 

Eventually Andrew ended up in Telluride, Colorado where he spent the winter working as a ski instructor teaching 3-14 year old kids the skill of alpine skiing. In his free time, Andrew could be found skiing and snowboarding the Rockies and making beautiful artistic shapes with yellow snow. With the winter season winding down, Andrew is super stoked to get back up to Alaska and hopes to see you on the water!
