Arctic valley is alot like chair 6 at Aly. No trees lots of snow but the weather has to cooperate. This last year was the first year it has been open since 2001. After 9/11 the military closed down access to the entire Valley due to them having some kind of istallation up on the peak directly across from the ski area. Im not sure what its exact function is but its probably some comm relay to get the signal over the Chugach.

Arctic Valley - Winter - Fun in the*Snow

Im down to do whatever, I plan on hitting up Alyeska a bunch more this year. We will have to just see on the sled boarding, mine has to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. I have been too busy so far this summer to get to it so early winter is when I will more than likely get it taken care of. But if not there is a chance of borrowing my buddies if he's not using it. Are you gonna be up during the holidays again?
