Free shuttles to Ski Land
We have heard students love the Ski Land pass, but also heard a number of students can't get there since they don't have a car. Now Nanook Recreation has purchased some seats for UAF students, at no additional charge to the student on the Ski Land shuttle.
Please visit Ski Land's website for bus schedule and details.
Students must sign-up in advance to ensure their seat. The driver will ask for you Ski Land Pass and Polar Express prior to boarding.
If you sign-up for a time and don't show, you will not be allowed to sign-up again.
Hulbert Nanook Terrain Park @ Ski Land
The Hulbert Nanook Terrain Park is proud to announce the next evolution of skiing and riding for UAF students. We have expanded the offerings available to students for this upcoming season and future seasons. Now beginner and advanced terrain are available. A full inventory of rentals is available to those without personal equipment. A beginner learning slope is in development. Finally, a shuttle is being planned for peak season. Why is a shuttle needed? The Hulbert Nanook Terrain Park will now be located at Ski Land off the Steese Highway.
UAF students taking 6 credits in a classroom and paying the SRC fee ($135) will now be able to get a season pass to Ski Land at no additional cost.

Ski Land season pass FAQ
UAF students who are taking 6 credits in a classroom pay a $135 SRC fee through the normal fee process. This allows you access to the SRC, pool, and ice rink. If you pay this fee, you are now eligible for a Ski Land season pass. Ski Land will be at the Outdoor Adventure off ice in the SRC on October 9th and 10th starting at 2PM. They will be at other events around town too. Check their calendar for details (CALENDAR LINK).
Come to the SRC during these times to verify you paid the fee and get your pass printed. If you miss one of the days at the SRC, come to the SRC to get a voucher to bring to any other Ski Land pass sales event or directly to the mountain. Mountain info can be found at https://skilandfairbanks.com/

While the Hulbert Nanook Terrain Park was great, we wanted to make it available to all ability levels. We considered installing a tow-rope to make it more user friendly. However, by entering into this relationship with Ski Land, we can offer students a more broad service for a longer period of time.
