Alaska’s regulations can be a bit confusing.
For starters, Alaska does not allow sports equipment with a built-in air filter.
In other words, you can’t buy a ski mask with an air filter and use it to ski.
However, some skis and snowboards can use a built in air filter to protect the head and neck.
You’ll also need to be able to show proof of insurance before you purchase sports equipment.
Also, Alaska doesn’t allow sports gear that’s used as a primary source of electricity, and you’ll need to have your own power supply for the device to work.
Finally, you’ll also have to obtain a permit from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game before you may purchase a snowmobile, which will help ensure the equipment is in good condition.
