Confirmed victory
Petitioning Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly

Approve the Govt Peak Area Plan as written WITHOUT Snowmachine Access

The draft Development and Asset and Management Plan now calls for no motorized access in the Government Peak Unit. Snowmachine access would put at risk the safety of skiers, mountain bikers, equestrians and other non-motorized users in the area. Motorized access to Hatcher Pass has been addressed in previous plans. Motorized use has been prohibited in the Government Peak Area since 1988 and residents purchased property there based on that prohibition. Changing the land status now would break that promise of no motorized access adjacent to their property.
