Mat-Su Ski Club growth and Projects

Our Nordic trails thrive thanks to dedicated volunteers and generous donors supporting summer improvement projects. Did you know Mat-Su Ski Club maintains GPRA’s Nordic ski trails year-round? This includes all of the multi-use Nordic and Nordic-only ski trails as well as lower Blueberry Knoll and the lower Government Peak trails. From grooming to rock tossing, we ensure a top-tier trail experience. Join us in shaping the path to adventure—support with donations, memberships, or your valuable time!
