Arctic Valley Ski Area is closed for the 2020-21 ski season. Thanks to all the guests, volunteers, and employees who helped make it special!

The Rendezvous Cafe will open in late May, and we are booking weddings for summer 2021 and 2022.

Arctic Valley Ski Area is now open for uphill travel. Note that this EXCLUDES the terrain park, which is closed. Please be careful, and pick up after your dogs. No ski patrol services are available, and snow safety work is not being performed. Marked and unmarked natural and manmade obstacles are present. Treat Arctic Valley as you would any other backcountry terrain.

Please pay the parking fee at the trailhead, or purchase a membership!

Road Conditions

Arctic Valley Road is 99% melted out. Please be wary of and avoid muddy areas – driving through them just makes it worse. The road is passable for 2WD vehicles without studs.

Please obey the speed limits on Arctic Valley Road. The JBER MPs have been very active the past couple of months and have given out lots of tickets.

Below is the current schedule for military live fire exercises on Arctic Valley Road:

For most exercises, road guards will allow traffic to flow every 20-30 minutes in each direction. For some exercises, the waits may be 30-40 minutes. The road (unless noted above) should not be ‘closed’. If road guards are communicating longer wait times than those listed above, or telling you the road is closed, please call JBER Range Control at 907-384-6230 and report the issue. They will work to make sure the units conducting training are following the road access rules.
