Mat-Su Ski and Snowboard Club
The Mat-Su Ski and Snowboard Club, Inc. (MSSC) is a non-profit winter sports club. 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 several locations in the Mat-Su Valley. 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. A third schedule is available which runs every single Saturday.
It has been snowing at Alyeska and is cold enough that they are also making snow!!! That should put things way ahead of last year!
Thank you to all of those who participated in the ski swap. Boarders: We have a box of various straps and high backs donated by Backcountry Bike and Ski in Palmer, so if you need a replacement part, shoot us an email and we may have it for you free of charge! There are still families looking for skis and snowboards, so if you have some that you would like to sell, let us know about it and we will try to get the word out for you. You can also put it as a comment on our Facebook page.
The busses are filling up quickly. With an overflow already on Wasilla schedule 1, we are going to open up the Trunk Road park and ride as a pick up/drop off spot as we did last year. Remember, a spot on the bus is first come, first serve based on EVERYTHING getting completed, not just the payment being submitted. We hope to have you join us! Feel free to email or call if you have any questions.

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 as a volunteer, please contact us on 907-354-7545 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
