Hooter Chairlift is now open! The base picked up more than 6″ of new snow early Monday morning, and another 5″ should fall by 8:00 PM. We’ve made five grooming passes on Sneaky and are now working on Williwaw and Otter Slide! Ski patrol is working on upper mountain terrain. Early season conditions and hazards exist; advanced skiers and snowboarders only. Stay tuned for an update later this afternoon on tomorrow’s operations.

Uphill Update: Access will be closed 12/24 starting at 5:30 AM for avalanche control work. Please respect all signage and stay off the mountain. After control work is completed, access will be via designated routes only: Trickster, Log Jam, Muskeg! Visit skieaglecrest.com/policy for an uphill route map.

Eaglecrest is open daily through January 6th, except closed Christmas Day. The Snow Bus will not run Tuesday, but we will let you know if it’s running Thursday, December 26th. All other services are open including the Ski Shop, Rental Shop, Snowsports School, Mountain Lift, Eaglecrest Grill, and Tower Bar.

If you still need to take care of holiday shopping, then give the gift of skiing or snowboarding and refer a friend to the Snowsports School. You can also find great gifts and stocking stuffers in the Ski Shop. Today’s thought comes from John Muir. “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” Be HERE this winter and have a great day!
