Matsu Ski and Snowboard Club

The Matsu Ski and Snowboard Club, Inc. (MSSC) is a not-for-profit winter sports club. MSSC was formed 2010 to follow the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District’s (MSBSD) long-running Ski and Snowboard Program. MSSC is a registered 501 (c)3 corporation and is licensed by the State of Alaska.

MSSC’s purpose is to transport area youth ages 10 – 18 to Alyeska Resort in Girdwood via motor coach from Palmer, Wasilla and Eagle River. Discounted prices for youth include all mountain lift tickets, lessons and equipment rental if needed. Two schedules of eight trips each run on alternating Saturdays from January – April each year.

Thank you, everyone, for a great 2015 season!!  We had our highest number of participants ever and hope to see you all again next year along with your friends.  We will be having a ski/snowboard swap in early November, so watch our Facebook page and this website for the big date.  If you rented gear in 2015, you should have a pretty good idea what you will need for 2016 and you can get a great deal on new gear as well as get money for your old stuff!!

Don’t forget to watch for our 2016 registration paperwork which will be available in August, 2015.  See you next year!

Our Volunteers

MSSC is entirely run by volunteers with many volunteers serving as chaperones. On duty days, chaperones ride the bus to and from Alyeska and spend time during the day at the MSSC chapeones’ table in the day lodge. When chaperones are not on duty in the day lodge, they may ski or snowboard at no charge. If interested in serving MSSC in a volunteer capacity, please contact us on 907-354-7545 or at
