Arctic Valley appeals to the Alaskan tele-skier, alpine skier, or rider who wants to feel like they are in the backcountry, but with the safety and convenience of a ski area. Due to the weekend-only schedule, fresh tracks are still possible even to those who have to work during the week. If there is a weekday snowfall, Arctic Valley will still have fresh tracks on the weekend. Also, the large acreage (500 plus acres) provides enough room for everyone to have their own slice of the mountain.
Families enjoy the area because it is safe and not crowded, so kids stay in sight and don’t get lost. Children who are not skiing yet can try the tube park or build snow forts, sled, or enjoy other kid-friendly activities that parents provide in the sunny, comfortable lodge. Arctic is convenient and affordable. Come join us for the weekend!
About Our Lifts
T-Bar – Vertical rise of 984ft with a length of 2,802ft
Located next to the lodge, the T-Bar was built in 1961 and is the heart of the ski area. The T-Bar offers a unique benefit, that if you just want to venture slightly up the mountain, or you want to take it to the top, you can dismount at any point on your climb.
Chair 2 – Vertical rise of 1,214ft with a length of 4,544ft
Chair 2, also known as Little Teton Chairlift, was originally installed in 1979 and became fully operational again in 2000. This lift takes you nearly to Rendezvous Peak. From there you can take in the spactacular views of Arctic Valley and Eagle River. The ride down is the longest of all the lifts!
Chair 1 – Vertical rise of 813ft with a length of 2,216ft
Chair 1, also known as the Thompson Lift, was first installed in 1968 and is the Southern-most lift. Renovation completed in 2006, it is a quick 4 minute ride up the mountain!
