T There is a train to take you to the south satellite. It won't be too much walking

It is impossible to know the answer to your question with any certainty without more information. Since Alaska Airlines is based in Seattle, it has a huge presence at SeaTac and has flights arriving at multiple concourses. The international flights arrive and depart from satelite terminal S.. It is connected to the main airport with a tram. Here is a link to a map of the ariport concourses: alaskaair.com/travelinfo/destinations/seattl…

It really doesn't matter As the train goes from each concourse so

where you land makes no difference

I'm assuming you're flying from Vancouver, in which case you'll pre-clear US border controls at YVR. If you're coming from some non-preclearance airport, such as Victoria, then you'd clear US controls in the South Satellite, and also depart from there.

If your trip is before May, and you're coming from Vancouver, then you'll probably gate at the Horizon gates on the C concourse. In that case you'll walk through the main terminal to the South Satellite trains. The whole thing should take around 15-20 min. gate-to-gate, depending on how fast you get off the YVR flight and whether you have to wait a few minutes for the train.

Alaska is moving much (but not all) of its operations to the North Satellite during the year, so there's a chance you might gate there from YVR. If you do, then you'll have to take the train from the N gates to the main terminal, then take a different train to the S gates. Not much difference in total time needed.
