PALMER - The Mat-Su Borough is moving ahead with plans to create a ski area at Hatcher Pass.
KTUU reports the first phase will be Nordic ski trails on the south side of Government Peak. An alpine ski area is planned on the northern side.
The project was awarded nearly $6 million in funding with most of that coming from the Federal Transit Authority to help build an access road.
