Why Mat-Su?

Internationally accessible; world class skiing; thousands of miles of trails; breathtaking landscapes. 

The Mat-Su 2024 Arctic Winter Games will mostly take place in the two largest cities, Palmer and Wasilla. Just an hour north of Anchorage, the two cities are separated by 10 miles and serve as a major hub of commerce, tourism, and recreation. The Mat-Su Valley is the fastest growing area in Alaska because of its accessibility, mountain vistas and recreational opportunities.

Acknowledging the Land 

We would like to acknowledge that the Mat-Su 2024 Arctic Winter Games are taking place on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina’ and Ahtna Dene who have stewarded this area of Benteh and Nuutah for thousands of years. Our community thrives thanks to their continued sharing of vision, wisdom, values, and leadership. We offer our respect to their Elders past and present and to current Tribal leaders.
