Fish Creek Road is a State Highway. Alaska DOT plows the road each morning prior to opening and will return as needed throughout the day.  Eaglecrest is the highest road accessible point in Juneau. Be prepared for winter driving and use 4WD, AWD, studded tires, or chains whenever necessary.

February 8, 9:44 PM

The official snowfall measurement is 2-3 inches overnight and 11” over the past three days. We’ll have a nice refresh and powder day today! It’s currently 31 degrees at the base and 25 at the top with winds at 5-10 mph. Snow showers are looking to be sticking around for today’s foreseeable future, and the rest of the week. Head to the mountain to celebrate powder Wednesday!

Ptarmigan, Hooter, and Porcupine are scheduled to operate 9AM-3:30PM. Groomed trails today: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Platter Chutes, Black Bear Access, Sneaky, Sourdough, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Otter Slide, Grubstake, Sluice Box, Ego, Lower Hilary’s, Log Jam, Raven Runout, Barrel Roll, Motherlode, Cheechako, Marmot, Breakfast Bowl, and Spruce Chute.

The Eaglecrest Grill will be open during operating hours in Fish Creek Lodge. The Rental, Repair & Retail shops will be open today as well in Porcupine. We are currently unable to accept new gear in the repair shop due to space. If your gear is ready for pickup, come and get it!


NORDIC (2.8): The lower nordic loop has been groomed on the hardened trail only with no track setter. Skate skiing conditions are great. Be sure to keep an eye out for icy spots and rocks under the new snow. 

The upper loop has been groomed for both classic and skate skiing. Trickster access has been rebuilt for easy access to the upper loop. Conditions are soft with the new snow from this week!
