A downhill ski area at Hatcher Pass (Government Peak area) has been a dream for the valley for the past 30+ years.  There has been a lot of infrastucture development, impact reports, and development plans invested in this venture.  No successful development has happened to date- in large part due to the size and scale of proposed ski areas, and in part due to seeking sole private investors.

Hatcher Alpine Xperience is a non-profit formed in November of 2015 and is composed of local volunteers and ski enthusiasts.  We aim to develop and maintain a small community alpine ski area in Hatcher Pass to promote safe outdoor recreation and healthy lifestyles.
