APU Nordic Ski Center is located on the campus of Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage, Alaska. It was established in the late 90’s as a new model for creating international success in American Nordic skiing. The model supports long term development and is structured to help athletes prepare for a long and successful career.

The club is made up of a multi-tiered system. The program encompasses an elite team which focuses on international excellence, a University ski team that is a stepping stone to the elite team and focuses on development of college-aged student athletes, and finally a junior-masters program, which focuses on promotion of skiing in the Anchorage, Alaska community.



The vision of the APU Nordic Ski Center is to develop world-class cross-country skiers and to promote the participation in the sport of cross-country skiing in the community.

The mission of the APUNSC is to promote the development of cross-country skiing in Anchorage through community based athletic programs and education. APUNSC will provide a high level of coaching, training, and support for junior, senior and masters level skiers who aspire to competitive success at the regional, national and international levels.
