    The proposed ski area sits at mile 10.6 of the Palmer-Fishhook Road, going up to Hatcher pass. The existing parking lot sits at about 1,450 feet above sea level. The proposed beginner chair (triple chair) for phase 1a would run about 1,250′ long and have a vertical gain of about 300 feet. The proposed main chair (high speed quad), phase 1b, would be about a mile long and have a vertical gain of over 1,200′ (to approximately 2,650′ above sea level).


    It looks Phase 1A is under development with the first lift towers being brought in.

    Hatcher Pass, been there skied that. There is some very nice terrain up there above and around the old Independence Mine area. For early snow we used to see some World Cup racers show up on occasions.
