That honestly depends on the season and the location. Sometimes winter comes early and sometimes late and there are seasons where precipitation is low for a winter. For instance, this last season was the highest in precipitation in the Anchorage area since the winter of 2012/13. Typically by late November/early December, we should be in the right range.

Can you tell me when the ice season starts here? Thanks Aug 9, 2017
