Snow at the Mine!

Independence Mine 12″- 14″ snow as of Oct 20th evening. Grooming delay due to mechanical issues.  Plan to groom Friday, Oct 21st in evening.

Grooming ends for the season!

The 18th of May was the last day of corduroy for the Mat-Su Ski Club’s grooming season. It stopped freezing at night this week and the snow is too soft to groom at Independence now.

Thanks to all the groomers, trail-rakers, tree-clearers, and others who made the trails so much fun for so many this winter.

Tentative Grooming Plans May 13-17

Independence Mine: Trails will be groomed Friday and Saturday nights and probably again next Tuesday night.
Archangel Rd:  No more grooming, but still skiable.
GPRA: Snow gone! Don’t stomp soggy trails!
Moose Range: Snow gone!

Member Appreciation Day May 15th

Bring your appetite for adventure, hotdogs and information! Join us on May 15th at 1:00 pm at GPRA for a guided hike along the planned Pioneer Loop expansion.  This approximately 5-7K tour will be led by Board members and will depart the parking lot at 1pm.  We will return around 3:00pm and will stop by the stadium area to share the vision for improvement. For the hike, plan on mucky terrain, walking off trail and a friendly neighborhood mosquito or two.  After the hike we hope you will stay for some grilled hotdogs, a cool beverage and tasty treats.   If you are one of our many Donors, please join us for this event! We can’t do it without you! We appreciate you and want to meet you. Please stop by for your donor gifts.

Tentative Grooming Plans May 6-10

Independence Mine:  Mat-Su Ski Club will attempt to groom Friday, May 6th but not optimistic.  Watch for grooming reports.
Archangel Rd:  Mat-Su Ski Club groomed the non-motorized trail this past Tuesday night and plans on grooming again Friday night and possibly Saturday night along with next Tuesday Night.
GPRA: No Grooming.  Done for the season.
Moose Range: No Grooming.  Done for the season.
