Final Ski Rental for Junior Nordics

November 12th is the last chance to pick up ski gear for the upcoming Junior Nordics season!  Volunteers will be at the shed at GPRA at 5:30 ready to size gear, help with the necessary rental paperwork, and accept payment for a short time only.  Please sign up here to let us know you are coming.  If you want to volunteer during this event, please contact Allison Fry at .

*Skis and poles can be rented through Mat-Su Ski Club for $50 a pair.  This includes skis with bindings and poles.  We accept cash, checks, and cards, however cash or check are preferred (the card reader isn’t Alaskan enough to work consistently in the cold!).

*A refundable ski and pole deposit of $150 per pair of skis is required at time of rental. Please bring a separate check with you for this deposit.  The check should be post-dated for April 17th, 2021.

It’s also important to note that Backcountry Bike & Ski will be set up in the parking lot of their store in downtown Palmer to rent boots and sell wax kits to Junior Nordics families on October 31st at 12:00-3:00 PM.  They will be accepting cash, card, and check, but will not have change, so please bring exact change.  The price of boot rental is $41.20 and wax kits will be sold for $46.35.


Junior Nordics ski rentals

Ski pick up is happening today, Saturday October 17th, from 4:30-6:00 PM at the GPRA parking lot.  An email with details has been sent but we’ve been getting reports of people who didn’t see it.  If you’re one of them, check your spam, and if you still don’t see it there, please contact us at .
