The end goal is to use this as a base layer in an app that adds other layers showing historical sea ice extent around Alaska, which is why this (or a similar polar projection) is needed.

Unfortunately there is no explicit support for handling the antimeridian in MapProxy (yet).
You will get unwanted results as soon as you cross the dateline (and that may happen internally when MapProxy transforms bounding boxes between 3857 and 3338).
