Hatcher Pass

  [Other] - 8:00 AM, Sun May 22, 2016

Still plenty of snow at Hatcher Pass. Skied up the road and around the mine buildings. Crust did not set up due to overcast conditions, but I measured about 3 feet of snow by the mine buildings, so there should be plenty of ski & crust opportunities as long as it gets cold and clear at night.

I wanted to Thank Ed Strabel and Mat-Su groomers for the amazing skiing this weekend at Hatcher Pass. I coach the APU Elite Team. We could not reach our National/International success with out the late season skiing. Our athletes each put in around 600 km in the last three weeks. Thank you! Skiing at Hatcher today was amazing for mid-May.

MSSC groomed the road and through the mine buildings this AM. Firmer snow/slush the further up the road you ski. Post hole conditions for walkers.

Just to clarify, skis go on your feet and skies are above your the head. Lets face it, winter is probably over. Just to make sure, I will groom tomorrow.

Hello,
In response to walking Friday afternoon comment. Please walk on the left side of road or take the maintenance trail. It has not frozen up there in two days so the snow pack in very soft. You will post hole! Have fun, enjoy the day, get some skies, but mostly just go outside.

The road up to and through the mine buildings re-groomed for skating and classic. Very soft this AM. Even for the three early birds that started skiing at 6:30.
