I have a lot of information about Whittier Alaska, and I have been there as well..... What I can not find is any kind of posting or blog discussing living in Whittier Alaska all year around. I am wondering what the best and worst of it is. How do residence use their time during the dark months? Would like to hear from people who live there, and have lived there for a while. Thank you.

In response to your questions about living in Whittier AK. I am a year around residence and the information about it being dark in Whittier for the winter is not quite correct. We do not receive direct sunlight because we are in the shadow of the mountain range, but it is light outside. In the winter you can enjoy the beauty of the surround mountains covered in snow and the frozen waterfalls. Some hearty boaters with heated cabins even find it enjoyable to venture out into the sound on calm days as the sound never freezes. I run a small inn and we host activites every month such as a halloween party/murder myster, poker tournaments, comedy night and so on. So if you're thinking about joining us, grab a good book, snow shoes and a warm coat and enjoy Whittie Alaska during the shaded months of winter.
