Winter is on the Way!

We have been busy up here on the hill. There are lots of updates for the season to come.
Here's a partial list of the things you can look forward to:

  • Our chairlift has a new haul cable - that's the cable that the chairs hang from. In addition to the new cable, we've done hundreds of hours of updates and maintenance. There's new electronics in the drive terminal, updated safety sensors, a new phone system and fresh load test. We've also re-contoured the loading and unloading area, creating better flow, faster loading and more options when unloading.
  • It's a great time to be a skier or boarder and a full-time student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. That's because we've partnered with UAF for a 5-year agreement to be a recreation resource for UAF students. Any full-time UAF student who carries 9 or more credits will receive a Ski Land season pass.
  • Another big component of the agreement with UAF is that the Hulbert Terrain Park that has been on the UAF campus for several years is moving to Ski Land, bringing huge number of features - boxes, rails, pipes, a wall ride, tires, another groomer and a lot more.
  • Both lodges have received a number of updates. The upper lodge received some new kitchen equipment and a better layout for the counter. The lower lodge lost its old carpet and is sporting some nice wood floors and reworked entrance doors. We've installed two new furnaces to keep the lower lodge toasty warm.
  • We spent time this summer creating more parking - fifty spaces - by clearing out some of the collected junk. Ski Land Road should also be better with the addition of a tractor-mounted 8-foot wide snowblower.
  • For those that want to ski or board, but don't have the gear, we've replaced the old rental fleet. Instead of 12 pairs of skis and 14 boards, we now have 185 sets of skis and 160 boards! We've even got boot sizes from kids size 8 and skis as short as 60cm.
  • And don't forget that Ski Land Season Passes are now available. Get the best prices if you buy before November 12, 2016. Check out the Ticket Prices page for all the details.

We're looking forward to a great season ahead!
