Expand the Peak

The Mat-Su Ski Club's next project is the Expand the Peak trail expansion. This will add an additional 5.5km of trails on more challenging terrain. These new trails will be located north of the stadium and north of the Pioneer Loop. This expansion will allow us to have  new loops between .5km and 5km and a 10km loop (incorporating the Matanuska Loop). We have received a pledge from an anonymous donor of $25,000 to go towards the Expand the Peak trail expansion as long as the Mat-Su Ski Club can raise $25,000 to match this pledge. If you would like to donate to this project, please go here.
