FAIRBANKS — The University of Alaska Fairbanks’ ice climbing tower opened for its second winter this week and the ice-making operation has gone smoother this year than it did last, both in terms of quality of ice and the production process.
“The ice has formed up to resemble more what a real waterfall would be; it’s more vertical this year,” Sam Braband, outdoor facilities manager for UAF’s Department of Recreation, Adventure and Wellness, said earlier this week.
Climbers got their first whack at this year’s ice when part of the wall opened on Wednesday.

The first and biggest challenge may be finding a place to call home.
Vitali Klitschko has emerged as one of Ukraine's most popular opposition figures, in part because he earned his wealth in the ring and appears to be untouched by the country's corruption scandals. The boxer known as "Dr. Ironfist" has his eye on the presidency, but there are concerns about his lack of experience.
Eight tech giants — including Google, Apple and Facebook — have written an open letter to the president and Congress warning that current government surveillance practices are undermining freedom. This follows leaks showing tech firms were part of widespread NSA surveillance programs of email and phone records.
An increasing number of people are signing up for health insurance through the government's new exchange, suggesting the Obama administration has made progress in fixing its broken website. But the exchange is just one part of the health care law, which remains politically divisive almost four years after its passage.
A world-heavyweight boxing champion has emerged as one of Ukraine's most popular opposition figures, in part because he earned his wealth in the ring and appears to be untouched by the country's endemic corruption scandals. But analysts question whether Vitali Klitschko — who also holds a Ph.D. in sports science — has the political savvy to unite the troubled country of 46 million people.
Every winter for the past 35 years, a holiday gingerbread village slowly takes shape in a corner of Anchorage's Hotel Captain Cook lobby. Preparations start in August, and the final product takes 100 hours to complete.December 8, 2013
