I enjoyed an awesome tour in Alaska a few years back from Haines to Homer, so I'm familiar with the "situation" there. (spectacular!!!) Now, I'm considering riding from Skagway to the lower 48 at the end of the summer working season. My question is, I know that the weather can turn ugly pretty fast and I'm wondering, being very prepared for the likelihood of a lot of rain/occasional snow, when is it just not a good idea to be riding in those parts? Assuming we can make it in three weeks, which seems fairly doable, is late September going into early October too late in the season to take on such an endeavor?
