It's Permanent Fund Dividend application time.  Now is your opportunity to give to causes you care about and wish to support. MSSC's main goal is to promote health and physical activity for children and adults, a good cause.  We realize there are many worthy causes and organizations you would like to support, and we truly appreciate any and all contributions to ours.


The 2015 Mat Su Ski for Women was a fantastic event!  Even the weather turned out perfect. In the second year of this Valley event.... it grew over twice the size over last year both in number of skiers and donations. We had 104 skiers this year, and raised $1980 for Alaska Family Services to help women and families in crisis in the Mat Su region.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this event a success including our volunteer committee of Rebecca Buchanan, Tracy Houser and Mary Ann Holmquist, awesome coordinators. Our Board and other Club members who volunteered to groom, set up, monitor, sweep, and take down. Maritt and many other volunteers who worked hard to make it all happen.

And of course a special thanks to our sponsor Mat Su Health Foundation, and all the local businesses who contributed the great raffle prizes, and all the folks who skied in such creative costumes and shared all those tasty dishes at the pot luck!

We'll do it all again next year!

    MSSC Scarified and re-groomed Stadium, Mat-Su loops and the Mtn Streams access trail for skating. A few thin and narrow spots but it should be good and fast.
