Eaglecrest's Community Programs
Eaglecrest is proud to host a variety of Community Programs on the mountain. Our goal is to spread the wonder of skiing and snowboarding by introducing new riders to the sport with our community-based programs.
This program is funded in part by the Eaglecrest
Foundation and provides Juneau middle school students the opportunity to
enjoy winter sports at Eaglecrest at no cost. Students for the program are
chosen by teachers and staff based on their economic and social need, grades,
and attendance. Students chosen are expected to keep good grades, good
attendance and low behavioral issues in school. In return they are provided
free lift tickets, ski/snowboard rentals, bus transportation and access to
clothing including jackets, pants, gloves, and helmets.
Books2Boards is also sponsored in part by
Mendenhall Auto Subaru and by grants from Holland America Line.

At the start of each Eaglecrest season we begin accepting
