Mat-Su Ski and Snowboard Club Inc.
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 encourage winter ski and snowboard activities by transporting 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.
MSSC is entirely run by volunteers with many volunteers serving as chaperones. The minimum age of all chaperones is 25 years old and all chaperone applicants must pass a background check before being approved as a MSSC chaperone. On duty days, chaperones ride the bus with the participants and aid in supervision and organization of the student participants when we arrive at Alyeska. Chaperones are required to take one shift during the day overseeing the chaperones’ table at the Day Lodge to cover any emergencies or questions. When chaperones are not on duty in the day lodge, they may ski or snowboard at no charge.
