Ski Land has a small quaint bar, lodge and opens during March for the Aurora Borealis from 9:00 pm to 3:00 am. The Aurora is amazing from this location, pay the moderate per person fee to utilize the facility while waiting for the Aurora Borealis, because it can get to negative 35 degrees. The lodge location is on top of a mountain range with unobstructed views of the northern horizon. The lodge is great, it allowed us to stay warm while waiting for the Aurora. We would go out to take photos, go inside to warm up and go back out to take more photos! Highly recommend, friendly staff!

We went late at night to view the Aurora Borealis. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We were also served snacks as we waited to see the lights.

Happened upon this place by accident. When I saw it was a lodge, I thought it was like a hotel but its not...it's a cozy place with informative hosts, warmth, a bathroom and hot drinks. Sure beats sitting in your car at Cleary Summit and has a much better view! Might be pricey but worth it. And still cheape than a tour plus at your own timing. Open 9-3am. Free wi-fi. Thank you guys for the great pics and conversation! Downside to sitting in car at the summit: no bathroom, no heat because all car lights should be off..'nuff said.

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 to this "lodge" to see the aurora. The locals will all agree; just ask them. For the amount of money they are charging, they should have recliners, snacks, games and windows to see out of. Rip-off. Don't say I didn't warn you....
