Valdez is known as the town in Alaska with the highest annual snowfall. For example, as of late January 2012, Valdez had received more than 10 meters of snowfall, and was using extraordinary measures (such as the National Guard) to deal with it.
To reach Valdez from Anchorage, there are several options. Quickest is to fly to Valdez Airport. There are three flights a day, offered by ERA Aviation. The flight takes 40 minutes and costs around $400 return. If it's clear, you'll get great views of the Chugach mountains. Or in a full day you could drive the Richardson Highway. Or, you could drive or go by rail to Whittier and try and get a boat across Prince William Sound. The boat trip would take at least four hours. However, most boats from Whittier only offer day trips - glacier sight seeing and fishing. The Alaska Marine Highway system operates a ferry between Whittier and Valdez.

No public transport. Car and bike rental are available. The new airport is a couple of miles out of town, so if arriving by air, you'll need to get a taxi into town to avoid a tedious trudge. Once in town, walking is a good way to get around, as the town itself is small.
rent a fishing pole set-up when the Pink salmon are in and head over to Allison Point and try your luck,as millions of pinks come in.
Take an Era Aviation flight direct to Anchorage.
