Keep the whole family busy and physically active during the long Alaskan winter. Birch Hill Ski and Snowboard Area offers skiing, snowboarding and tubing for all ages and abilities. With snow-making capabilities, Birch Hill is the first hill in the interior to open and boasts the only night-skiing venue in the Fairbanks area.

Terrain Park
In addition to the skiing and snowboarding runs a first rate Terrain Park has been constructed with mounds, rails and boxes to do tricks on. Alaskans identify Birch Hill as the best terrain park in the state.

Bunny Hill
Beginner skiers and snowboarders of all ages are welcome at Birch Hill. The Bunny Hill's Magic Carpet lift gives beginners the ability to focus on their newly-learned skills while not having to worry about a chairlift. Simply step onto the moving pad and let it carry you up the hill while you stand comfortably.

Tubing Hill
Snow tubing is a great thrill no matter your age. No experience or skill is necessary to enjoy the selection of three 800 foot runs. Simply hop on your tube, push off and enjoy the ride. A lift makes the ride back to the top of the hill carefree.
