This place is NOT what it is advertised to be. It is a hole in the wall snack-shack; about as comfortable as a greyhound bus station in the wrong side of town. There is absolutely no reason to waste your money and time driving out...More
The Northern Lights were expected to be out the night we got into Fairbanks. Since we didn't land until 4:30pm, we didn't want to do anything too pricey (in case the flight was late). Ski Land was great. It was nice and warm inside and...More
We paid the $30 per person to go up to Clearly Summit to attempt to see the northern lights. We got hot chocolate which was actually pretty good. We waited around for a few hours, but no Aurora lights . Which was ok, we knew...More

Thank you for your visit and review! We are so glad that you got to see the lights!

Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed our venue and sorry about the heebie geebies!
People have a lot of advice on where you should go to view the Northern Lights and depending on how active the Aurora is, sometimes it's easier than others. Skiland was my preference because no matter which direction the lights were dancing, you have unobstructed...More
Such a nice place to see the aurora borealis. The staff was very kind and friendly. We had hot chocolate, and the lodge is warm and has restrooms. It was a nice group viewing the aurora, and we enjoyed ourselves. The lodge is situated perfectly...More
Skilled offers some great winter skiing. The owners are putting in new chair lifts and sprucing up the lodge. There are a variety of runs and something for everyone. It is north of town and offers a beautiful view of the White Mountains. It can...More

Hello! We definitely recommend coming to Fairbanks to see the Northern Lights. While they are hard to predict, you have a better chance with the longer night hours and further North. There are bigger ski resorts near Anchorage but our hill provides a lot of fun terrain for skier of all skill level. Please reach out if you have additional questions and we hope you enjoy your trip to Alaska!
