Goldstream Sports Presents:

Birch Hill Candle Light Ski

Come check out the beauty of nordic skiing at Birch Hill! The Fairbanks community is invited to a mid-winter candle light ski.

Please join us on Thursday, January 18th 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!” Trax Outdoor Center, conveniently located at the bottom of Birch Hill Road, is offering 2-for-1 ski rentals for the event.

Questions? Contact membership@nscfairbanks.org.

Note: if it is colder than -10F at 3pm on the day of the ski the event may be postponed.
