The exhibition Snow Flyers celebrates the ways we recreate and travel on snow and showcases how Northern ingenuity has for centuries inspired people to adapt winter gear, equipment and machinery for survival, sport and transportation.
The objects on view in this exhibition, from snowmachines (motor sleds) and kick sleds to snowboards and fat tire bikes, span decades of climate-inspired creativity and include materials from the Anchorage Museum’s collection as well as from other Alaska museums and private collections. On view are examples of vehicle conversions along with snowshoes, skis, Arctic air boats, snow crawlers, snow gliders, track-wheeled rigs and other winter inventions spanning decades of snowy winters. Each is a testimony to creative adaptation in cold climes.
