The future of skiing in the Valley is about to change in a big way. The The Mat-Su Ski Club is entering into an agreement with the Mat-Su Borough for development of Nordic ski trails on the south side of Government Peak.
The development of these trails will require a lot of volunteer effort from members of the Mat-Su Ski Club. Please set aside some time for trail development this coming spring, summer and fall.

Powering the Nordic Center
Jeremy Maxie and Christina Parkinson recently completed the Report "Renewable Energy Feasibility Study for the Hatcher Pass Nordic Center" for their class project in Engineering 494 G at University of Alaska Anchorage. You can see their report in the attachments below.
This study focused on solar and wind, but we hope to look at hydro in the next year, and further refine by site specific locations if wind energy is deemed feasible.
