They have all 4 seasons, but due to its geographical location, both summer days and winter nights are long.

Off season for Alaska begins in May and ends in October. During theoff season, prices seem to be relatively low and places are lesscrowded.
Four, just like everywhere else. Spring, summer, fall, and winter.
the good kind
About 100 days.
Even north of the Arctic Circle Alaska experience all four seasons. In places like Barrow Spring, Sumer and Fall can seem to be very brief. A n d . W i n t e r .. S e e m s ..…. T o .... D r a g ..... O n ...... F o r e v e r.
Yes. July is the warmest month of the year and Barrow can and does receive snow in July.
Yes. For all parts of Alaska the wettest month is at least 2-1/2 times wetter than the driest month and for most regions it is 3 to 6 times wetter. The wet time of the year va…ries somewhat, but given Alaska's large area it may be surprising how few patterns of yearly distribution of precipitation there are. (Precipitation includes rain and frozen and freezing precipitation such as snow, freezing rain etc.) The north coast and the west coast north of about 60 degrees north have quite low total precipitation and the distribution somewhat closely follows the temperature, meaning July and August are the wettest months and mid and late winter are the driest. The southwest part of the state, e.g., Bristol Bay, the Aleutians, the Alaska Peninsula and up to around Kodiak Island receives considerably more precipitation overall but in a much less consistent pattern, It is generally direst in April through July after which precipitation increases substantially with a broad maximum is September through January. The remainder of the coastal regions, from the outer Kenai Peninsula coast south through the southeast Panhandle is the wettest part of Alaska, with a fairly well-defined pattern. The precipitation (mostly rain) is almost reversed from that of the Arctic with respect to the temperature: the warmer months are direr and the colder, wetter. In particular June or July is the driest in most places and the rainy season is in the fall and early winter, with October being the wettest month by a fair amount. Alaska's Interior is considerably drier that other areas except the Arctic, but like it has the most precipitation is the warmer months. However much of the summer precipitation is due to short-lived showers rather than the slow, steady rain common along the coasts, so there is a difference in its effect on daily life. The south-central region, including Anchorage, shares some of the patterns of the interior, but modified toward the pattern of the coast areas on its south edge. Precipitation there is about half way between the two zones in total amount with the driest time of year in the spring and the rainy season peaking in August or September.
The farther north you are determined to venture, the closer to July you want to be. In the best of times, northern climes like Barrow are hard to enjoy enjoy in July and only …the genuine (Pick One: Wacko, Nutcase, Fruitcake, Masochist, Weirdo, Hermit, Sicko or Nature Lover) elects to Winter Over in in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau are tolerable and even pleasant on a year around basis but even those who call it their birthplace indulge in the pleasures of the Snow Bunnies who have winter homes in Phoenix or Tampa. There is a rare breed of residents that actually thrive in the barren Aleutians on a full time basis manning and maintaining Radar and Communication facilities. A salute and Hats off to them. For an Alaskan Holiday nothing could be finer then mid July to mid August.

Yes it is about 100 days.
About 100 days which limits the selection of crops.
It can run from about a month or two up north, to as much as nine or ten months down south. Depends on climate and temp. Usually spring to fall. In the spring Alaska has what …we call break up. This is where the ice starts melting and the rivers and creeks start flowing again. Mosquitos are usually out right after that.
No in fact the population of mosquitoes is very low in Alaska
The 4 seasons of Alaska are no answer they don't have it so look somewhere else
