Is it thawed enough for it to be a good time for looking at houses? Kind of hoping to get there before the tourists but far enough from bad weather i wont be forced to brave storms due to linited time to see what we need to see. Planning on spending a week looking. Good plan or no?

Late April? Maybe yes. Either way, it may be good to see a home with snow anyway, see if there is much heat loss.

Other on here will better to answer then myself though.

Depending on how the rest of the winter goes...April could be a sloppy mess or frozen mess...Would say mid May might be a little better and safer...

We could get 3 feet of snow in March. It's hard to predict. Might be buds on the trees.

Late March-early April was always my favorite season for snow-machining. Why? Because...the weather had warmed up sufficiently to make a day trip enjoyable, but not warm enough to melt all the snow. Especially in the mountains. April is kind of a transitional month....not yet spring, but getting there. Like the others said, you might find nice weather, then again maybe not...you just can't count on it. We can get a LOT of snow in early April. By the end of May, spring is definitely here...

We came up mid-April for our house hunting trip. Got a foot of snow in Wasilla but it was melted the next day.
