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.
Bit of a delayed start this morning, but Ptarmigan, Hooter, & Porcupine are now open. There was an accident blocking Douglas Highway and employees couldn't make it up earlier this morning. Black Bear will open later this morning. It’s 28° at the summit with SE winds 13 knots; 33° at the base. Today is gorgeous with partly cloudy skies and snow showers forecasted. We just had a 16-day run with 96” of snowfall. It started snowing again yesterday (day 17) and really picked up in the late afternoon. Today is day 18, and there’s now 8” of new snow at the Powder Patch and 3.1” at the base! Fresh coat of powder today! Groomed trails: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Trickster, Sneaky, Sourdough, Ego, Lower Hilary’s, Lower Spruce Chute, Log Jam, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Grubstake, Sluice Box, Otter Slide, Motherlode. Eaglecrest is open Wed-Sun. The bar is open Fri-Sun. Eagle’s Nest restrooms are closed today for maintenance. Today’s thought: “Fix the heel. Fix the problem. Just kidding. Today is National Telemark Ski Day! Bend the knee for some face shots.”
Freshly groomed for skate and classic, complete by 9:30 AM. 5km upper; 6km lower. The Dog Loop is in! Lower trails also have Forest Trail, Meadow Loop, Fish Creek Loop, Guy's Hill, and multiple inner-Meadow connections. Cloudy with scattered snow showers. Come up any time, the skiing is great!
On operating days, uphill access is not permitted within the ski area boundary. There are three designated 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.
