Moose Mountain Ski Resort

20 minutes from Fairbanks, a southern exposure (with hours of sun each winter day) shields this resort from the prevailing Northeasterly winds.

With Fairbanks' typical temperature inversion Moose Mountain averages 20 to 30 degrees warmer than in town.

Moose Mountain features over 1,250 feet of vertical, with terrain varying from a bunny slope at Moose Meadow to the steep North Slope. Runs are available for all abilities.

Their lift consists of a "variable capacity terrestrial" tram; buses with ski racks - a lot warmer and friendlier than a chair lift. More buses are added when the area gets busy, resulting in mostly very short waits at the bottom.

The resort is open every weekend during the winter, Thursday through Sunday. Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., snow conditions and daylight permitting. (They close at dusk, November through January (which comes pretty early, here in Fairbanks!

They were open every day during spring break in 1999. (March 13-21) .

Moose Mountain, on their web site, provides information on the current ski conditions, plus a local phone number to call in case their forcast has not been updated yet. Prices are also included, with a discount for skiing in below zero weather, or after 1 p.m.
