Arctic Valley Ski Area, Alaska

Alpenglow at Artic Valley

We're a small ski area, serving mostly the in-the-know locals who are looking for a laid-back, uncrowded ski resort. We have minimal grooming, but great powder that will last all day. Don't forget to check out the Afterglow Pub upstairs in the lodge for a great selection of local brews.

We have a tubing park that operates 3 (4 in the spring) 1.5 hour sessions. Tickets are $15/session. This is great fun for the whole family, and perfect for kid's birthday parties.
