February 24, 8:52 AM

Good morning! Chairlifts opened early! It’s snowed 7.9" inches in the last 24 hours at the top of the mountain! This is all after 11.6” on Friday, 6.7” on Saturday, and 3.4” on Sunday! It is stacking up nicely! Conditions are excellent everywhere. This snow is amazing!

Today’s forecast is for scattered snow showers, SE winds 5-10 knots, and a high near 28°. Ptarmigan, Hooter, and Porcupine Chairlifts are now running 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Black Bear is weekends and holidays only (9:30 AM - 4:00 PM). Today's groomed trails: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Williwaw, Sneaky, Sourdough, Sluice Box, Easy Bowl, Motherlode, Lower Hilary's, Ego, Logjam, Trickster, Otter Slide, and Grubstake.

Join us Saturday, February 29 for a film night with Red Bull Media House & Faction Skis’ new movie “The Collective” and local throwback film “Rendered” from Scott Baxter of Aurora Projekt. The Powder Keg Cup is March 7, 14, & 21. Sign up for Snowsports School Youth & Adult Programs, Workshops, & Camps!

Today's thought is an impressive statistic: "Eaglecrest has now enjoyed 37 consecutive days with snowfall!” Be HERE this winter and have a great day!
