OVERALL COMMUNITY RISK LEVEL2 - MODERATE
Eaglecrest remains in Phase 3 Operations. Although CBJ’s COVID-19 Risk Metric is now Level 2 - Moderate, Eaglecrest will monitor the risk level for a few weeks before making any operational changes. This winter so far has been efficient, safe, and successful thanks to everyone’s cooperative efforts. Guest and staff safety is our highest priority.

The COVID-19 Risk Metric Rating determined by the City and Borough of Juneau’s Emergency Operations Center. The Risk Metric Rating fluctuates based on infection rates per 100,000 population and is updated daily by 5:00 PM.

Register for this weekend's Beacon Scramble fundraiser for the Coastal Alaska Avalanche Center. We have 15” of new snowfall this week! Yesterday was simply incredible, everywhere on the mountain. Today we’ll have flurries and clouds to start the early morning, gradually becoming sunny, light wind, high of 29°. The whole mountain is open, all chairlifts, East Bowl, West Bowl, & Steep Chutes. Tomorrow, Friday, will be another bluebird day, then more snow over the weekend. Chairlifts are running 9-3:30 PM. We’re open Wednesday through Sunday. Groomed trails are Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Sneaky, Sourdough, Lower Hilary’s, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Otter Slide, Sluice Box, Grubstake, Cheechako, and Motherlode. Today’s thought: “Those who live by the sword, perish by the sword.”

Prior to visiting, read skieaglecrest.com/covid19, and be aware of our new policies and procedures. Wear a face covering and dress appropriately. There are no indoor facilities to warm up. Treat your vehicle as your lodge, and please be respectful. Have a great day!

UPHILL STATUSOPEN
On operating days, uphill access is restricted to three routes along the ski area boundary to access backcountry terrain, not Eaglecrest terrain. Please refer to the uphill route map and read the uphill policy.

Eaglecrest reserves the right to suspend uphill access at any time for ski patrol and mountain operations. This includes operating and non-operating days and hours. Uphill skiers, snowboarders, and hikers are using the area at their own risk and assume all responsibility. Always read the Mountain Report or call the Snow Phone before visiting.
