What a wonderful place to view the Northern Lights. We were lucky to have a clear and beautiful evening, which meant that soon after dark we had our first view of the lights - what a thrill! The owner of Ski Land was helpful, pleasant...More

I would have given it 5 stars, but the guy running the operation gave me a serious case of the heebie geebies. The two ladies that were running the aurora operation were really cool and incredibly helpful!

I grew up in Utah. There are no mountains like that here. Skiland does have some good hills though and we come here often. The chairlift is a bit slow, but it does the job. The food is yummy and you always see a familiar...More

Nice place and nice lodge to view the aurora. It is very far from the city so no light around will interrupt the view of the aurora

Traveled to the area to view the aurora borealis, and went skiing here during the daytime. It was a balmy 20 F. Don't expect big powder- they get limited snow, but keep it well groomed. Not busy at all--had to wait for 2 people in...More
