Dave Narona. ABS Airbag representatives, awards an Arctic Man Game winner with a new airbag. Take the Pea Pod challenge at Arctic Man 2018 for your chance to win.


The Alaska Avalanche Information Center will be back at Arctic Man bringing forecast information and educational training opportunities.

Thanks to support from AARP Alaska and the Alaska Department of Public Safety, the AAIC instructors will be on hand conducting and issuing forecasts and offering backcountry skills workshops that include a wide range of hands-on activities to fit every skill level and interest.

Play five-card stud poker for your chance to win and learn. This is not your typical poker run. Players will travel to five stations to learn and practice safe backcountry skills in exchange for a random number. The player with the highest hand will split the cash pot and be entered to win a variety of prizes contributed by sponsors including Klim, Team CC, Black Diamond, Eagle River Polaris Arctic Cat, Anchorage House of Yamaha, Alaska Mining and Diving Supply… More prizes being added daily.

If you register to play the Arctic Man Pea Pod Poker Challenge in advance at you can exchange your registration for a poker chip redeemable for your game card plus be automatically entered to win the grand prize package.

Anyone can play the game but you must register online to qualify to play for free and be entered to win the grand prize.
