UAF in the Winter

Arctic Greetings~

Recently I have been asked about living in Alaska, especially during the winter time.

I just want to say that even though I love Alaskan summers, the winters here offer unique opportunities and beauty that is rare in other places.

When I am not studying or working, getting out in the winter time offers a variety of recreation. For example some of my favorite past times include ice climbing, going to glaciers, hiking, dog sledding, and just enjoying all the beautiful places. There are a variety of places to go within a days trip from campus. If you are new to winter time recreationOutdoor Adventures UAF offers guided trips through Outdoor Adventures. They have everything from camping, skiing,snowshoeing and much more throughout the year.

If you are really interested in winter time out door recreation, UAF even offers a variety of classes in outdoor recreation and leadership certification.

Probably, the place that my dogs and I visit most is Ester Dome, which offers a panoramic view of the Golden Heart city and the surrounding valley.

I understand being a busy college student, but it is important to take a break from the books. So if you don't have the time for a day trip UAF offers a variety of hiking and ski trails that take you through the beautiful boreal forest right here on campus.

Please remember when going out in the cold dress for the weather, carry enough water, and wear proper foot gear.
