A new ski area is coming to the United States this winter. Skeetawk, located in Hatcher Pass, Alaska plans to open on December 5, 2020.
The term Skeetawk can be translated to mean “where we all slide down” in Dena’ina.
For its inaugural season, the new ski area will have a triple chairlift, 10-12 groomed runs and a day lodge. Hatcher Alpine Xperience – the non-profit which will be operating the ski hill – plans to expand the ski area in the years to come to include, ski rentals, ski lessons, lighting, snowmaking, as well as adding additional terrain and lifts.
Hatcher Alpine Xperience has recently released their new trail map and is asking for name suggestions for their community trail.
