1996

The 1996 Games in Chugiak Eagle River were pivotal Games. The Host Society did an enormous amount of promotion, attracted some major sponsors and had expanded media coverage throughout Alaska. That year, at the political leaders meeting, a move to a youth focused Games was approved. Seven contingents participated in 20 sports: alpine skiing, badminton, basketball, cross country skiing, curling, Dene Games, dog mushing, figure skating, gymnastics, hockey, indoor soccer, Inuit Games, shooting, ski biathlon, snowshoe biathlon, snowshoeing, speed skating, table tennis, volleyball and wrestling highlighting 1600 northern participants.
