The Fairbanks community is invited to a mid-winter candlelight ski presented by Goldstream Sports and the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks. Please join us on Thursday, January 4th from 4 to 7pm at Birch Hill Recreation Area as we turn off the trail lights and instead brighten and warm the snow with hundreds of candles. This is a FREE event and all ages and abilities are welcome, so bring your family and friends.

A beginner loop around the stadium will be available, and the warm-up loop will be uniquely flickering. Come ski amidst the peaceful glow of frosted candles. Take as few or as many loops as you’d like and stop inside for a warm up and some hot chocolate and cookies. The first 80 youth participants will receive a free gift!

This event is generously sponsored by Goldstream Sports and NSCF in hopes of seeing many new faces enjoying these beautiful Fairbanks trails and to have those familiar with Birch Hill see it in a different “light!” Questions contact

Note: if it is colder than -10F at 3pm on the day of the ski the event will be postponed until January 12th.
