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 9 credits in a classroom and paying the SRC fee will now be able to get a season pass to Ski Land at no additional cost.

Ski Land season pass FAQ
How do I get my pass?
- UAF students who are taking 9 credits in a classroom pay a $75 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 SRC for three days in October (see the calendar of this page). Come to the SRC during these times to verify you paid the fee and get your pass printed. If you miss one of these days, 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 www.skiland.org
Is there a shuttle to Ski Land?
- Right now, no shuttles are scheduled. Outdoor Adventures will offer a trip or two in the Spring semester. Ski Land hopes to offer a shuttle for UAF students and the Fairbanks community during the Spring peak season. There is a "Ride Board" on the 1st floor of Wood Center where students can find car pools.
I pay the SRC fee and my dependents buy SRC memberships. Do they qualify?
- Sorry, this is only for the actual student.
Will we get free rentals and lessons?
- No, all other services at the mountain have additional costs. However, student pricing is available.
Are there black-out dates?
- No. When Ski Land is open, your pass is valid.
Are there any reasons I will lose this pass?
- Ski Land and UAF reserve the right to revoke a pass at any time for any reason. Reckless use of the mountain and unsafe activities will not be tolerated. The student code of conduct applies to behavior at the mountain.
Why did UAF close the terrain park on campus?
- While the Hulbert Nanook Terrain Park was great, we wanted to make is 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. The current contract with Ski Land is valid for 5 years, if everything goes smoothly.
