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.


Thank you to all who made the 2nd Annual Icicle Double a wonderful event. It would not have happened without our generous sponsors of funds and prizes, or without our great volunteers who worked outside and behind the scenes managing logistics and details, or without all the skiers on Saturday and Sunday! And let's not forget to thank Mother Nature who came through with snow and good ski weather for a few days at a critical time:) Thank you everyone. Check out the great photos posted in the Facebook 2014 Icicle Double photo album. And have you seen this article in the Frontiersman?

    I skied all the way to the gate this afternoon before the grooming. There was a snow machine track all the way and at least one other skier had been up. No set tracks, but fairly easy going.
