Notice: GPRA Trail Closure During Arctic Winter Games

Due to the upcoming Arctic Winter Games and their use of the ski trails, the Mat-Su Borough is closing the Government Peak Recreation Area trail system to regular public use from March 10 – 15. This closure will include all skiing, biking, and hiking trails but will reopen on March 16. We thank you for your patience as we enthusiastically welcome these athletes to the Mat-Su. Spectators are welcome to attend on foot, no skis, and only within designated spectator areas. Only volunteers, coaches, officials, and athletes may be in non-spectator-designated areas. Groomed trails will still be open at Independence Mine, Archangel Road, and the Moose Range for your enjoyment.  Thank you for your understanding.

If you have any questions, contact the MSB at 907-861-8578.

The Government Peak Chalet is the place to meet for social, recreational & educational events in the Mat-Su valley. Perched at the base of Hatcher Pass, it presents spectacular views, and is an ideal venue in every season.

The 3600 square foot banquet hall can seat up to 150 guests, and features a high-vaulted ceiling and large windows. The Chalet's warming kitchen serves as a convenient staging area for catering or concessions, and the bathrooms are spacious and ADA Accessible. The Chalet now offers a private bridal suite or volunteer lounge for private event rentals.
