For a week or two in mid-April, a remote mountainside in the Alaska Range becomes one of the biggest towns in Alaska. It’s Arctic Man, a kind of Burning Man for the snow machine set, with the craziest extreme skiing competition you’ve ever heard of. We’ll preview Arctic Man, the speed, the parties, the family fun, and the backcountry travel, with an organizer, a competitor, and a spectator. KSKA: Thursday 4/4 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm
The snow is deep and the purse is big, so organizers expect a good turnout at this year’s Arctic Man. The unique race in the Hoodoo Mountains near Paxson brings together snowmachiners, skiers and snowboarders for Alaska’s biggest annual party.
