Rise and Shine it’s Slush Cup Sunday! We have a 24 hour measurement of 7” up top and 4” at the base. Holy smokes, what an El Nino season it’s been, and nothing like a powder day to close it all out. Expect some light, blower snow up top and slightly more creamy surfy turns towards the base. It’s currently 31 degrees at the base and 27 up top with 20-25 mph winds. It’s not supposed to warm up much more today so be sure to plan your closing day, Slush Cup Beach ‘fit over whatever warmer layers you desire. We look forward to seeing your shining faces out on the best hill in all of Juneau today. Posted below is today’s timeline:


There’s still a few open slots if you want a chance at winning a season pass or goodies from NAO. Or just for bragging rights and to prove you’re more hardcore than most. Participants can start making their way to the middle of Hilary around 11 to kick things off.

SHARE THE LOT: Let's all try to park smart today. Pull all the way forward into your parking spot. The upper lot is for compact vehicles only and diagonal parking with one-way traffic. The lower lot is two-way and can be parked straight in. All vehicles are welcome in the lower lot! No parking is allowed on the uphill side of Fish Creek Road.

There are open holes, hazards, and running water in the gullies. Please adhere to all rope lines and signage. Ski in control and keep track of your buddies.

Groomed trails today: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Platter Chutes, Black Bear Access, Sneaky, Sourdough, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Otter Slide, Grubstake, Sluice Box, Ego, Lower Hilary’s, Log Jam, Raven Runout, Cheechako, Motherlode, and Spruce Chute. Ptarmigan, Hooter, and Porcupine chairlifts are scheduled to operate from 9 AM - 4 PM. Blackbear will be closed due to lack of staff.

This season would not have been possible without each and every single one of our staff members. They have been working tirelessly operating days, nights, and weekends to make sure Eaglecrest is the best it can be for you all. They all deserve the world and then some but a simple “thank you” could make their day. As for me, it’s been a privilege to attempt to predict this seasons conditions with you every morning all winter long! There’s no place like Eaglecrest, and like you, I am just happy to be here. After all, it’s not ‘goodbye’, just ‘ski you later’!
