NORDIC SKIING IN JUNEAU
Eaglecrest has over 10km of Nordic trails through the Upper and Lower trail networks. Also, through various agreements, the Juneau Nordic Ski Club (JNSC) grooms trails over 100 days per season in two parts of the Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area (MGRA). The JNSC also regularly grooms Montana Creek Road and assists Eaglecrest staff in grooming the ski area’s trails.
The JNSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization funded and operated entirely by volunteers, membership dues, and donations. The mission of the JNSC is to promote cross-country skiing through youth development, trail development and trail maintenance in the Juneau area. Each groomed kilometer costs approximately $10 for gas, snow machines and grooming equipment, repairs, insurance, etc. Please become a member and donate today!
