It’s Opening Day at Eaglecrest! Ptarmigan, Hooter & Porcupine Chairlifts are running until 3pm. Eaglecrest is open daily through January 10, 2021, with the exceptions of Christmas Day and January 7.

There’s 3″ of new snow at the summit, 10” in the last 48 hours, and conditions are much better than expected after yesterday’s warm and wet weather! Wear a face covering and dress appropriately! There are no indoor facilities or outdoor shelters to warm up and dry out. Treat your vehicle as your lodge.

This is Eaglecrest’s largest terrain opening in recent memory. Though, Upper Mountain terrain is reserved for experts only. There is no grooming or easier way down.

The Lower Mountain’s best trail is Sneaky, accessed by the Hooter Chairlift. The Porcupine Area has great snow for Holiday Camps and Learners Programs.

Prior to visiting, please read through Eaglecrest’s new operating procedures and policies at skieaglecrest.com/covid19. Remember to wear an appropriate face covering whenever you are not actively skiing or snowboarding, treat your vehicle as your lodge, and please be respectful.

The Ticket Office, Snowsports School, and Ski Shop are open with service provided through outdoor windows. All visitors must first check-in at the Ticket Office window. Advanced reservations are required for Snowsports School lessons.

If you want to rent skiing or snowboarding equipment this season, you must first book a pre-fitting reservation by calling (907) 790-2000 x211 or rental@skieaglecrest.com.

The Eaglecrest Grill is open with an outdoor drive walk-through format! Place food orders at the outside service window, located on the north side of the Fish Creek Lodge, and pick them up at the deck!

 About Eaglecrest

Eaglecrest is Juneau, Alaska’s community-owned and operated ski area, averaging 320″ of snowfall across 640 acres of big mountain terrain with a dedicated learning area and a 1620′ vertical drop. Pack your beacon; we have impressive backcountry access. Know before you go!

Powder lasts longer at Eaglecrest. There are no roads into Juneau, Alaska. You have to live here, fly, or ferry to experience this powder paradise. Untracked snow, ridge hikes, and breathtaking views are more common than lift lines. Spread out and set your own tracks!

What we lack in luxury, we make up for in charm, solitude, and affordability. There’s no need to rush at Eaglecrest. Fixed-grip double chairlifts bring you up, and the snow is waiting at the top. Adult lift tickets are only $59, and Eaglecrest’s Snowsports School has some of the most affordable lessons in North America!

Eaglecrest’s regular operating schedule is Wednesday through Sunday, with daily operations over Christmas & Spring Breaks and MLK & Presidents’ Weekends.
