Facility Information
The Big Dipper Ice Arena is owned and operated by the Fairbanks North Star Borough for the benefit of all its residents and visitors. Once an airplane hangar in Tanacross, the structure was reassembled and repurposed as an ice arena in Fairbanks in 1968. Commonly referred to as "The Dipper," the facility hosts public skating, youth and adult hockey, and is home of the Ice Dogs of the North American Hockey League. A walking and jogging track is free to the public during scheduled hours. Most areas of the facility, including the ice, are available for private rentals and special events.
