APU Nordic Ski Center began a decade ago as a regional Olympic training center for cross-country skiers. The program developed some of the best elite skiers in the country including many Olympians, World Champion and national medalists.
APU Nordic Ski Center is a place for those who wish to pursue international excellence both academically and athletically.
APUNSC offers programs for the entire Anchorage community from Juniors to Masters.
APU Nordic Ski Center is located on the campus of Alaska Pacific University, a small private liberal arts and sciences university.
