well, no. Alaska is a Maritime climate, meaning the water content of the snow is way higher than a place like Utah (and Colorado, Alberta, Montana, etc) Utah's snow is especially light because the weather systems come straight off the desert and hit the Wasatch Range - which is a Continental climate.
Alaska's maritime climate ("wet" snow) combined with the sheer amount of snow that hits the mountains there is what allows the snow to stick to such steep faces making for some gnarly skiing potential.
woah, i have to agree 100% with this statement, japan's snow (apperently, ive only skiied onteribble and quebec) is really nice, its really fluffy and light and thus really mellow for pow skiing
