Not sure I can help you much regarding areas around Anchorage. Most of my Arctic Trecks was on the Berring Sea, Nome area and north of Nome.
I did spend my first two years in Alaska living in a little 12 X 18 cabin in Lignite (3 miles north of Healy on the Nenana River). Fact is the first two winters I was laid off and fed my family mostly on rabbits and ptarmagin.
I think you're gonna have to go north a bit, up around Huston, or maybe around Turnagan Pass, but I heard that place is over run with snowgos.
Like I said, I left there in '94, things have change from what I've heard.
