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.

Schedule 1, it’s your turn again on February 6th!  Snow is in the forecast every day this week for Alyeska, especially Friday and Saturday!!  This is going to be great!  Please let us know if you are not going to be able to make it.

All 4 busses for Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 are completely full!!  We do not have any more space for full season participants.  If you are between the ages of 10-18 and still a registered student in the Mat-Su Valley, please contact us to get on our standby list.  It is first come, first served each week.  Contact matsusnow@hotmail.com to get your name on the list.  We can not accept phone calls for our wait list.

Welcome to MSSC’s 2016 season!!  If you are joining us for the first time, there are a few essentials that you need to bring:  Goggles (a must at Alyeska), skier/boarder socks (yes, specifically those kinds – sold at sporting goods stores), hand warmers, good gloves or mittens, and a plastic garbage bag (in case it rains or to put wet gear on the ride home).  If you don’t have your own helmet, don’t worry, we will find one for you!!  Protecting your noggin’ is important!!

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 as a volunteer, please contact us on 907-354-7545 or at matsusnow@hotmail.com
