    I generally "SKIN" Cat all summer. Fired up the D-7 last week to move snow, on the driveway. You can "SKIN" Black Bears all summer........

    It depends on where you are. We are having a pretty limited snow year compared to years past. There should still be plenty of turns to be had.

    Usually you can skin up mountains in the immediate Anchorage area into mid to late May. Mountains like Peak Three will hold snow that long, but it might be concentrated in a chute. If you can drive south an hour to Turnagain Pass, the season usually can extend well into June. You might have to hike the first few hundred feet, but you'll find skinable and skiable snow. As Phish mentioned, though, we're having a low snow year so it might take some effort. Hopefully March will be good to us and the snowpack will add some feet.
