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.
Thank you, Everyone, for a fantastic 2016 season!
Due to the warm temperatures and melting snow on the lower part of the mountain, Alyeska Resort has closed the lower part of the mountain as well as the Day Lodge and Day Lodge Rental Facilities for the season. They are also not sure if they are going to have any of the mountain open on Saturday, April 16th, 2016. Alyeska has informed MSSC that they will not be able to provide the rentals that our club needs nor enough space for the kids to change and store their gear. There will be NO beginner trails open and no lifts other than the top chairlift (6) which will only be accessible by the tram from the hotel if they are open this Saturday.
The MSSC Board of Directors has decided that under these circumstances we have no choice but to end the season at this time (April 13, 2016) so the final trip originally scheduled for Saturday, April 16, 2016, will be cancelled.
Thank you, participants, for a great 2016 season. We look forward to seeing you again in 2017.

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
