At night, Skiland sets up for viewing the Aurora. There is a charge of $30 per person, but for that you get two warming huts with free hot coffee and tea or hot chocolate, cookies and brownies for a nominal cost. One warming hut has a big screen "auroracam" so you can set up your camera, then wait in comfort for the display to begin. Skiland is about 30 miles from Fairbanks on well maintained roads, even the smaller road from the highway to the resort. You may be tempted to stop just off the highway in the lower parking lot to watch the Aurora, but be warned - you will be competing with tour buses with their engines running for a viewing spot. Our advice is to proceed on to Skiland.
