Arctic Valley Master Plan RFP

The Anchorage Ski Club (ASC) is excited to extend this request for proposal (RFP) to develop a master plan for Arctic Valley. Links to the RFP and its attachments, the 2020 Arctic Valley Concession Agreement and the 2021 Anchorage Ski Club Strategic Plan are provided here.

The Anchorage Ski Club formed in 1937, and is a 501(c)3 non-profit that owns and operates the facilities at Arctic Valley Ski Area, within Chugach State Park (CSP), just outside of Anchorage, Alaska, USA. ASC is governed by a 15-member volunteer board of directors. Due to the formation of CSP, the original long-term lease could not be renewed, and the disposition of the land agreement was in question for many years. This uncertainty severely hampered ASC’s planning and development efforts over the last decade or longer.

In 2020, ASC and CSP completed a 20-year concession agreement with two 20-year extension periods. This has allowed ASC to once again focus on long-term planning and capital fundraising. In 2020, ASC developed a Strategic Plan for AV, which was approved by the State in April 2021. The first goal of the Strategic Plan is to develop a Master Plan.

With this master plan ASC wishes to develop the area in a manner compatible with its existing character, and expand and diversify its uses to serve the community to the optimum extent, while maintaining and enhancing qualities valued by existing users.
