future resort town

Haines has a poor economy, there are few jobs and quite a few people in Haines work away, are seasonal workers or work from home via the internet. Every year the skiing industry is expanding here, cat skiing, heliskiing and so on. The mountains here are incredible and the whole area is breathtaking, I predict that in the future Haines will take advantage of the incredible natural beauty of the area and expand on the beginning skiing industry that is forming here. Will this be detrimental to the town and populace who live here I don't know. I find Haines to have a myriad of outdoor activities, fishing, crabbing, mushroom hunting and so on. In the winter there is a hardcore group of snowshoers, backcountry skiers, snowmachiners and many other interests.

    Haines seems to offer a lot of nature things to do like fishing and crabbing.
