Nike Site Summit was an active part of America's first line of military defense from 1959 to 1979, during the Cold War era.   Now, Friends of Nike Site Summit (FONSS) volunteers are working with Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to restore Site Summit as a valuable community resource, part of the Arctic Valley “experience,” and as a tool to educate current and future generations about the contributions of Cold War veterans, particularly those who served at Site Summit.

Spend a summer morning with FONSS volunteer guides who will escort you on a tour of Site Summit, showing those buildings which have been preserved since our work began in 2010 and describing the plans and progress on the others. 

Weather and conditions permitting, tour participants will be transported in mini bus or passenger coach from the Arctic Valley Ski Area parking lot to the Lower and Upper areas of Site Summit. 

Please note that appropriate face coverings are required for all participants who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Face coverings for all others are optional.

Registration is a non-tax-deductible donation to FONSS.  Total registration is limited to 40 participants age 12 and older and will close once that limit has been reached.

On-line registrations must be completed by credit card on-line.  If you prefer to register and then mail a check, please contact Friends of Nike Site Summit (FONSS) by e-mail at or by telephone at 907-929-9870 weekdays (leave message).  Mail-in reservations are on a space-available basis and must be completed before August 5, 2023..

Safety of tour participants is the highest priority for both FONSS and JBER.  Tours of Nike Site Summit may be cancelled or postponed on short notice due to dangerous weather conditions and/or unanticipated military operations.  Should this occur, every attempt to reschedule the tour will be made.  If rescheduling is not possible, tour participants may request a refund of their tour reservation, less processing fees. 

FONSS is a program of Preservation Alaska (formerly the Alaska Association for Historic Preservation, AAHP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  Your credit card receipt will indicate AAHP as the recipient.
