In 2015, a group of local volunteers and ski enthusiasts formed the nonprofit Hatcher Alpine Xperience (HAX). We want to develop and maintain a small community alpine ski area in Hatcher Pass as a way to promote safe outdoor recreation, healthy lifestyles and bring lift-access skiing and snowboarding to one of the great mountain passes of all time – Hatcher Pass.

History

A downhill ski area at Hatcher Pass (Government Peak area) has been a dream for the valley for over 30 years. There’s been infrastructure development, impact reports and development plans invested in this venture but no successful development due to the size and scale of the proposed ski area and the lack of private investors.
