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.

December 4, 6:34 AM

Good morning Eaglecrest users! Today will bring more groomed laps on Porcupine under clear blue skies with low winds. It is currently 20 degrees at the base with winds at 5-10 mph. Be sure to layer up today to protect yourself from the cold temperatures as it’s looking to remain in the lower to mid-20s today.

Be sure to pay a visit to the Eaglecrest Grill and Mountain Lift Coffee, as both are open in Fish Creek Lodge today during operating hours. The Rental, Repair & Retail shops will be open today as well in Porcupine Lodge. We will also be continue to be collecting non-perishable food items for the Southeast Alaska Food Bank in both Porcupine Lodge and Fish Creek. Food banks in Juneau are struggling to keep up with demand, so please bring what you can to the mountain and donate to a good cause.

The snow bus will not be operating today.

Groomed trails today: Muskeg and Dolly Varden. The Porcupine chairlift is open today from 9 am - 3 pm. The upper mountain at Eaglecrest is considered skiing out of bounds. Please be aware that Eaglecrest Operations Teams will be working throughout the day snowmaking on the upper mountain, so please give them plenty of room to work. The snow is still shallow on the mountain and early-season conditions and hazards are still present.

Drive safe, and get on up here for opening weekend laps! See you out there.
