Anchorage Ski Club

Founded in 1937, the Anchorage Ski Club is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit that operates the Arctic Valley Ski Area and Alpenglow Lodge.  Our organization is run almost entirely by volunteers and our operations are paid for by membership dues, lodge rentals, lift tickets, and the generous support of our community through grants and donations. We strive to keep our prices reasonable so that everyone can enjoy the mountain. We work closely with other non-profits and community organizations to provide access to healthy winter and summer recreation in an alpine environment for people of all abilities.
