Statement Regarding Covid 19 Virus and Public Safety affecting Skeetawk Operations:
Hatcher Alpine Xperience recognizes the current need to follow both federal and state community and workplace health guidelines. We are closely monitoring the current situation with public facility and ski area closures state wide. We have not issued public opening dates for Skeetawk in regards to ski area operations. We are addressing risk management decisions regarding pending spring operations day by day as we progress through the final weeks of construction and safety checks.
Skeetawk has no anticipated timeline for spring operations and is CLOSED to all access beyond essential security and caretaking functions.
A resident caretaker will remain on site.
Skeetawk will continue to work diligently through the decision making process with staff, volunteer, and public safety as a priority.
Thank you for your patience.
