The lodge is two stories and has many large windows allowing for incredible mountain views overlooking Anchorage. There is a large lawn in front of the lodge for outdoor ceremonies and, for those who are interested in additional views of the Chugach range, our chairlift is also available to rent (weather permitting). The lodge has a buffet style kitchen with a large front serving counter.

We have open catering, which means you can use any caterer you like, self cater or have a potluck!

We have parking for up to 500 cars and a front door turnaround for easy access by guests, catering staff, and musicians.Our normal lodge rental period is Memorial Day weekend through September.

Sample Packages

 

Alpenglow Lodge has endless options for customizing your wedding package! To give you some ideas, we've put together a few sample packages showcasing the most popular groups of options. All of these packages are fully customizable, so you can add or subtract anything from our menu of options. 

We're happy to work with you to select the most important options to help you stay on budget (or throw the biggest party you can), and have some money-saving ideas, as well as recommendations for great local vendors. Contact us today and we'll get started working on your wedding!

Perfect for a one day, no stress wedding! Let us take care of the setup, decorating and cleanup, while you treat your guests to a ride up our chairlift with awesome views of Chugach State Park.

Planning a small to mid-size wedding, and don't want to stay up all night? Take advantage of Alpenglow Lodge's fantastic views and neutral interior to host a no-fuss wedding and reception in one day. Setup is easy with everything you need (except linens) already on site, and can be done in a couple hours. At the end, put away the tables and chairs and let us do the detail cleaning. Includes 12 hours in the lodge, tables, chairs, dance floor, and sound system.

Have lots of friends that are excited to share the best of Alaska's outdoors with you? Invite them for a long weekend wedding party at Arctic Valley! Camping/RVs allowed on site, in a beautiful setting without the city lights or noise to detract from the natural surroundings. There's plenty of time for a full rehearsal dinner after setting up. Your friends and family can help decorate and clean up, making this weekend getaway more affordable than an all-inclusive package. Includes 24 hours split between three days, chairlift ride to Rendezvous Peak, all tables, chairs, dance floor, decorations, and sound system. 

Cost: $6450

Facility rental - $4200; Equipment - $1250; Chairlift - $1000

Looking for a low-key wedding weekend with your friends and family? Pair this setup with a casual dinner (Moose's Tooth anyone?), self-serve bar, and lots of camping for a fun, relaxing weekend to celebrate your wedding. 24 hours spread over three days allows lots of time for setup, a casual rehearsal, cocktail hours, an unhurried ceremony, reception, and time to clean up on the last day. Take a hike with your friends and family on our trails, and explore the Park on your schedule. Includes tables, chairs, dance floor, and sound system (no DJ needed!). This is a more casual, affordable option for those wanting a full weekend to celebrate. 

Cost: $4800

Facility Rental - $4200; Equipment - $600

During the ski season special arrangements can be made to rent part of the lodge while we are open, or the whole lodge when closed.  Please note that we are unable to host formal events during the winter, due to the lodge being set up for the ski season. We are an operating ski area on weekends and some school holidays from whenever there is enough snow to open, until mid-April.  Additional road plowing costs may apply.
