This article is part of our Tip of the Week series. Look for a new tip every Friday until Opening Day – Saturday, December 5! Please review our COVID-19 Operations Plan and other helpful information at

No matter what phase of operations we’re in this winter, Eaglecrest will strictly enforce its policy that appropriate face coverings are required at all times when you are not actively skiing or snowboarding. This includes all indoor and outdoor spaces.

Here’s the tip: wear an appropriate face covering!

We have a Two Strike Rule, which is outlined on page two of the plan. If someone does not comply with our policies, the offender is banned from the mountain and we will “turn off” his or her pass. By doing so, he or she will not be able to visit Eaglecrest, ride the chairlift, or get through the RFID gates. The first offense is a 14 day suspension. The second offense is a suspension through the end of the season.

These might sound like pretty serious punishments, but we need to be strict to keep our staff and guests safe. The logic is simple and clear: the chairlifts won’t spin if we aren’t healthy and working!

We know everyone wants to ski and ride this winter, so we don’t expect to have enforcement issues. The Juneau community seems to be doing a great job wearing face coverings in public, and the Eaglecrest community has always been super supportive. Besides, it’s not hard to cover your nose and mouth, especially in a winter environment!
