Winter in Alaska's Copper River country is a time of peace, silence, and beauty   Winter in Copper River Country is a time of peace, silence, and stunning beauty
Winter turns Alaska's Copper River country to crystal, a transformation not seen by those who visit during the easy, busy months of summer. You may choose to be different, and see a face of Alaska that you will never forget. Winter temperatures range from +40°F to -60°F, but the most memorable and beautiful days are the times of extreme cold. These are days of clarity, of brief sunny brilliance followed by nights of diamond stars, swept by awesome flashing lights of the aurora borealis. Listen to the raven who, on a day when nothing else moves, sits in the top of the tallest spruce and burbles a benediction on the beauty of the world. The raven knows: There is no time like deep winter to appreciate the sharp, hard, uncompromising magnificence of the northland.
