If you find yourself in Fairbanks, Alaska - head on over to Beaver Sports for everything you need to make the most of Alaska's backcountry adventures. Including Trail Butter!
We sent Beaver Sports owner, Greg, a few questions about his shop and here's what he had to say...
Store Name: Beaver Sports
Location: Fairbanks, AK
Owner: Greg Whisenhant (pictured and interviewed below)
Tell us why your customers are special. Customers bring a unique perspective to the places they’ve been and the activities outdoors. Those that come in the store add an element of excitement to our day. It’s fun to hear about the adventures our customers have been on, the equipment they used and maybe the next trip they plan to make.
What makes your store so unique? We try to give our customers large choices of products. Interests vary even in the same activities and our customers can individualize their activity to the fullest.
Tell us your location's story. The store location used to be a hardware store that went out of business in the late 70’s. Beaver Sports was located down College Road about a mile from where it is today.
Favorite or Most Recommended 'Backyard Adventure.' An activity that will allow you to travel into the wilderness. It can be on a bike or on XC skis but did you know that Alaska is the only state that has more waterways than roads. Maybe my favorite backyard adventure is in a canoe, kayak or inflatable boat.
