Banff Mountain Film Festival - Virtual
We know the Banff Mountain Film Festival is a tradition for many Fairbanks families and adventurers. While we cannot gather in the Davis Concert Hall this year, Banff has us covered! This year you can get the stock from the comfort of your own cabin with your favorite beverage. You can watch it a few times and see more films than normal! We bet some die hard folks will project it on the side of their house with a bonfire. This will be a great evening at home during our long dark nights. By purchasing the programs through the link below, you will be supporting UAF Outdoor Adventures and you can do it from anywhere!
A reminder of some Virtual Tour basics:
- Individual programs: $15 USD (3-day rental period)
- Bundle (2 programs): $28 USD (14-day rental period)
- The rental period begins immediately upon viewing (as soon as the customer presses play).
- Films can be re-watched within their rental period.
- Purchase here to support UAF Outdoor Adventures: https://filmfest.banffcentre.ca/?campaign=WT-152954
- On the website, customers will need to have an internet or wifi connection to view
the films, and they are available only through online streaming (not download).
We have a Banff Mountain Festival App, it can be used to watch films, but not to purchase them. They have to be purchased on the web first. The App will let you synch programs you rented, without needing wifi, once the synch process is finished.
- If your customers have technical questions, direct them to the Help Centre for more information. (Reviewing the “How do I watch on my SmartTV” will be particularly helpful)
- Sales will be available starting 8am MST on November 26

OA Spring Trips
We have put together a schedule of trips and activities for the spring 2021 semester. These trips include a wide variety of activities and trips such as skiing, snowshoeing in the Alaska range, fatbiking, rock climbing and a paddle on the Delta Clearwater River. Trip sign ups begin on January 4th, 2021. Check out the trips and sign up through myNookRec or by calling or stopping by the Outdoor Adventures office on the west end of the SRC.
We have a wide range of summer and winter gear to help you get out and enjoy the best kind of distancing by getting away in the backcountry. During the winter we rent XC skis, AT skis, ice climbing and mountaineering gear. During the summer months we rent rafts, canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards as well as many of the camping necessities. Check out our rental list for all the gear that is available.
Lower Angel Creek Cabin
Lower Angel Creek Cabin in the Chena State Recreation Area is a great place for a winter getaway. The beautiful Angel Creek valley provides an awesome wilderness experience that lets you feel much further out than the 3.1 miles it takes to get to the cabin. Logistics, maps, gear lists, recommended camping areas and a discussion of the hazards are all a part of this trip guide. Click Here to get to a Google drive where you can download the slide presentation, maps and gear list for this trip.
