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.
Good morning! Get on up here for day 2 of opening weekend. There hasn’t been much snowfall in the last 24 hours, but our groomers have been hard at work preparing the ski area for another day. Today’s forecast is for a high of 22° with scattered snow showers and a 5-10mph east wind.
Porcupine, Hooter, and Ptarmigan chairlifts are running 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Today’s groomed trails are: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Black Bear Access, Sneaky, Sourdough, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Lower Hilary’s, Motherlode. The lower portions of Raven, Log Jam, and Spruce Chute have also been groomed!
Early season conditions prevail and unmarked obstacles exist. The snowpack is still shallow and many hazards exist beneath the snow surface. Use additional caution off of groomed runs.
Today’s thought is this: “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Remember to wear an appropriate face covering in all indoor spaces. Thanks for checking in on the mountain report, have a great day!
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.
