    Snow much to see in Girdwood

    Set atop Mount Alyeska in the Chugach Mountains, the Alyeska Resort is more than your average ski hotel.

    Cool your heels in Girdwood

    As far north as Scotland's Shetland Islands, Girdwood weather is cold-to-mild all year round. Summers are cool, and average highs peak in the mid-60s between June and August. Considering it's Alaska, the winters are fairly mild _ temperatures are mostly in the 20s and 30s between November and March, but the bulk of the town's 218 annual inches of snow typically fall during this period. Since winter sports make up such a big part of Girdwood's entertainment, you'll find Girdwood vacation rentals tend to be a little higher during the snowy months.
