WHY DO WE CHARGE AN AREA USE FEE?
The Anchorage Ski Club, Inc. is a self-supporting non-profit organization.
WE RECEIVE NO TAX INCOME FROM THE STATE, MUNICIPALITY OR U. S. GOVERNMENT.
In 1997 the military began charging the Anchorage Ski Club for the maintenance of the six-mile long Arctic Valley Road. We need your help to keep it open to the public. The daily user fee is $5 per vehicle or for $25 you may purchase an Arctic Valley Basic Membership, which includes parking priveleges. Buses and commercial vans pay $2 per passenger. Your fee goes directly towards the cost of sewage disposal, trailhead construction and maintenance, parking lot and limited road maintenance, and also assists us with establishing and maintaining summer trails and the groomed winter trails utilized by cross-country skiers, back country skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers.
The Anchorage Ski Club’s presence at Arctic Valley predates the formation of Chugach State Park. The ASC leases the land from the State of Alaska. It is not military land. THE ANCHORAGE SKI CLUB DOES NOT RECEIVE ANY INCOME FROM THE SALE OF CHUGACH STATE PARK DECALS. STATE PARK AND MILITARY PARKING DECALS ARE NOT VALID AT ARCTIC VALLEY.
Please support this access to Arctic Valley and Chugach State Park by paying your user fee. The fee station is located at the kiosk in the upper parking lot.
