Greeting Eaglecrest Skiers & Riders,

I want to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to all of our guests for doing your part in following our COVID-19 policies and procedures. Due to all of your cooperation, we’ve had a very successful start to the season.

As we prepared for a winter that would be like no other, there was a myriad of unknowns. Fortunately, we have much to be thankful for. The days are getting longer, the sun is shining, and we’ve had some pretty incredible days on the mountain. Early season snowmaking helped us survive two rough patches of weather, and Mother Nature has delivered the goods in-between!

This weekend we’re adding new propane heaters and seating arrangements in tents located slope side of the Fish Creek Lodge. Keep in mind, face coverings are required inside the tents unless you are actively eating or drinking.

We know two things: the most important thing for all of our guests is keeping the lifts turning, and life during a pandemic provides no guarantees. Since there’s still plenty of uncertainty, our new Winter Operations Plan is to keep doing everything that we have been doing for the first seven weeks of the season, with some small changes.

All of the details can be found at

With all of your continued support and understanding, we’re looking forward to a long, healthy season, spring goggle tans, and big smiles! By this time next winter, the “tips up, masks up” signs will hopefully become a [socially] distant memory of the season we rode during COVID!
