It has been an amazing winter. As Spring comes in, HAC will continue weekend forecasts until the end of April.
This year's forecasting program was made possible by our sponsors and donors. A ** special thanks ** goes out to our Gold Level sponsors! These organizations are a part of the community of riders, skiers, snowmachiners, and professionals that make Haines such a special place for winter recreation. They've shown their commitment to make Haines a safer, stronger winter destination for all. Please visit them (and all of our sponsors) to enjoy the services they provide in our town.
**You too** can be a sponsor of winter safety in Haines! Get in touch to become a sponsor for next winter! ... See MoreSee Less
