The Mat-Su Ski Club is a non-profit that promotes Nordic Skiing in the Mat-Su Valley for fun, community and health.

We groom trails at the Government Peak Recreation Area, the Moose Range, Archangel Road and Independence Mine. We host community ski races, and more competitive races, as well as the Annual Ski for Women. We offer educational clinics and adult ski lessons. Hundreds of kids are learning to ski every winter in our Junior Nordic program. We organize and lead community ski get-togethers. We work with other ski organizations, such as local high schools, when they race at the venues we maintain. We organize volunteers, raise funds, pursue grants, and work with public and private agencies and organizations to build new ski trails and to maintain the trails year-round. 

In order to continue all of these programs, we need your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible year-end contribution here!

Thanks for you help!
