The Chalet is privately managed by contract lease with The Mat-Su Borough, and offers a unique opportunity at an unbelievable value. You can get the personal touch and attention of a privately-owned business at the reasonable rates of a public use rec facility, and make it magical.

The Chalet is located on the foothills of Hatcher Pass, with spectacular views of the Chugach Range, Knik Glacier, and the Mat-Su Valley. It features a 2300 square foot banquet hall with 25-foot-high cathedral ceiling, large windows, and a welcoming layout for up to 150 guests indoors, and two large outdoor spaces for larger events.
