I would think very late. After all, Alaska's just about the least suitable climate for a BEV there is, especially one with lots of unreliable features that are unlikely to work well in cold and snow/ice.
OTOH, someone charged at the (still not officially open) Rock Springs, WY SC on I-80 on Friday, and made it all the way to Cheyenne in their Model S90D, driving at night so no a/c (temps in the '60s), Range mode with a full charge, keeping their speed down to 60 mph to Rawlins, 70 between Rawlins and Laramie and 85 between Laramie and Cheyenne. Westbound will be tougher given the climb from Cheyenne. Still needed are Evanston and Rawlins to make it possible for S60s to get across Wyoming (just Rawlins to make it easy for big battery cars), and Laramie as well to make it easy for all year-round in both directions. As they're all under construction, they should open within the next month or two.
Also, there are now 3 sites known to be permitted with 40 SC stalls each, in Kettleman City and Baker, CA, and one in Norway.
