Independence Mine

With plenty of snow already blanketing the ski trails around Independence Mine in Hatcher Pass, the MatSu Ski Club is kicking off a full season of trail grooming, lessons and events for Valley residents, volunteer leaders said.

For the 2021-2022 season the Club will offer a series of adult lessons for beginner and intermediate skate and classic cross-country skiers, said Ailis Vann, who volunteers as Ski Club’s vice president. Those interested should mark their calendars for registration Dec. 1 on the club’s website. Thanks to high demand, the lessons, which are $15 each, sell out fast, she said.
